Event Description:  For World Space Week, we will be launching a video camera aboard a weather balloon with live video streaming. The balloon is expected to ascend to a height of around 33kms within ~100mins. During this time, we will be displaying the live video on the ground with a setup at the clubhouse for the audience to view. Hopefully, if the day is clear and cloud-less, we will see the view of the Earth below and Space with the curvature of the Earth at 33kms !
