ERGO Balloon Update

We got the balloon payload from the August 17 launch back, courtesy of the National Park Service!  We’re still analyzing data, but the picture below tells you where it started and ended up.  The data above 39,000 feet were scrambled and unusable, but you can fill in the middle with your imagination.  In MY imagination, it must have gone very, very high.  With some math and science we hope to calculate the actual maximum altitude.
