A recent high altitude balloon launch from students at South Cheshire College demonstrated some of the extreme icing that payload cameras can experience. the launch took place from Welshpool in late April 2013. The balloon payload passed through light showers early in it’s ascent. Following this, ice can be seen progressively forming in the top left corner of the picture image.
This Balloon Project was carried out by: Michael Brooker (Project Leader), Michael Walsh, Ryan Grimes and Jaques Jervis. Launch to landing took 1 hour 55 minutes in total but it took us another 2 hours 30 minutes to drive to the location and find it.
