Aerostat, by Page Stevenson, was created to inspire people to dream big and have fun!
The balloon was launched outside Kent Oregon and travelled about 87 miles landing south of Prosser Washington. The total flight time was roughly 2 and a half hours. The cameras came back safely with a parachute – you can see the parachute in the initial shot, it is the orange device underneath the balloon. When the balloon bursts, the parachute is the only thing above the payload.
