White Star Balloon Valve Vacuum Test Video


We have been fairly quiet publicly, but many subsystems are coming to completion rapidly, including the  helium gas overflow vent valve.  Completion of anything flying on a ballon means it’s time to do some science!  Tests must be done, data must be noted, hypotheses checked.  Gary Flispart and I put together a detailed technical video explanation of the vacuum leak test system we’ve made.


Stay tuned for more updates at http://whitestarballoon.org , we are on track to launch in the next month or two!
