Fire Prairie to Launch Space Balloon Fire Prairie Upper Elementary School, in the Fort Osage School District, is working with Kansas City area Burns and McDonnell to jointly launch a space balloon. The space balloon is a large weather balloon that carries cameras and sensors to the edge of space. The balloon will take video, audio, temperatures, pressure, acceleration, rotation and magnetic fields. Depending on the weather, the space balloon launch will take place on Friday, April 10 at 9 a.m. at Fire Prairie Upper Ele- mentary, 24810 E. US 24 High- way Independence, Mo. 64058. According to student Madison Beckmann, "We have already started coding the camera. Next we are going to work on figuring out what certain people are working on. A space balloon launch is a big balloon with a camera attached to it. We may also add some other items to see what happens to them in space. We will be recording the altitude of the balloon. The space balloon will get up to at least 80,000 feet, and take pictures or recordings of what it sees and that could in- volve planet Earth. We might even see satellites. We will also see beautiful scenes." Results of the space balloon launch will be shared with the school's students, staff and Burns and McDonnell.
