Missouri S&T students will have the opportunity to contribute to eclipse science during two upcoming solar eclipses as part of the Nationwide Eclipse Ballooning Project in 2023 and 2024.
“Missouri S&T has been conducting high altitude balloon launches since 2013, but this is the first time we’ve participated in the Nationwide Eclipse Ballooning Project,” says Dr. Jillian Schmidt, associate teaching professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering. “We’re excited to connect with others in the high-altitude ballooning community as we participate in this program.”
