OLHZN-4 was the fourth high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight featured our first onboard astronaut in front of one of the flight cameras. We named our astronaut and this flight “Butchy” in honor of our friend, Oliver “Butch” Mousseau who tragically passed away earlier this spring after a head injury he sustained while officiating.
OLHZN-3 was the third high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. The launch date for this flight was Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 5:59:59pm EDT (21:59:59 UTC). The goal of the third flight was to further solidify recovery methods and obtain photos and videos above 80,000 ft. in altitude. We successfully achieved a maximum altitude of 98,492 ft. and have HD photos and videos of the entire flight!
