BEXUS 11 Balloon

Today, November 23, BEXUS 11 was successfully launched at 08:19 UTC.
The BEXUS programme allows students from universities and higher education colleges across Europe to carry out scientific and technological experiments on research balloons. Each year, two balloons are launched, carrying up to 20 experiments designed and built by student teams. BEXUS experiments are lifted by a balloon with a volume of 12 000 m to a maximum altitude of 35 km, depending on total experiment mass (40-100 kg). The flight duration is 2-5 hours. There is a similar student programme for rockets called REXUS.
