Investigating solar radiation and atmosphere with a solar balloon constructed by students

Untersuchungen zur Sonnenstrahlung und Atmosphäre: Schüler bauen und steuern einen Solarballon

A solar balloon is a hot air balloon made of black plastic sheeting which absorbs almost the entire solar beam. It is an exciting and interesting project for students to make a solar balloon, but it has a major problem: it descends only at sun set. I am happy to report that my students have solved this problem, creating a way to bring the balloon back to earth during the day. In every experiments and released, they met various problems. But each time, they found a solution which allowed their project to improve. The solar balloon can be used thus now for studies of the atmosphere or the ground in Middle school and in College during the day!
