Near Space Exploration Team - About Us

Chase a balloon across states & see the world from 100,000 ft!

Near Space Exploration Team, also known as NSET or the "balloon team," seeks to learn valuable skills by playing with balloons. Working with various sensors, flight computers, lightweight cameras and other widgets and gadgets, the NSET team conducts experiments at high-altitude settings while also obtaining quality photos of near outer-space. It's very exciting to watch as the balloon goes up up and up, and lead exhilarating chases across state-lines to retrieve the balloons (while hoping they do not end up falling in bodies of water).
