Documentary on Balloon-borne Telescope Developed at U of T Streaming Now
Earlier this year, astronomers successfully launched a balloon-borne telescope that captured extraordinary images of the Universe on its first flight above the Earth’s atmosphere. The Super Pressure Balloon-Borne Imaging Telescope (SuperBIT) was flown to the edge of space by a helium-filled NASA scientific balloon the size of a football stadium, where it also helped researchers investigate the mystery of dark matter.
