Ahhhh the road to hell is paved with good intentions….

Well almost, must be 12 years ago I had the balloon, the helium and the instrument…

I must confess not for meteors though, part of a student project that both literally and metaphorically never got off the ground! Could never get the remote control and radio data link to work properly. It was going to be looking at cosmic rays but I thought it would be a great idea to fly it at night with a camera just out of curiosity. Bounced due to health and safety concerns… ; – (

…and the nice big meteorological balloon perished without ever being inflated…

Somebody will do it with a Pi and an IMX camera!
