Canada-Wide Experiment w/ Aurora Research Institute and Science Rendezvous

Science Rendezvous is launching its second instalment of the Canada-Wide Experiment (CWE). The CWE is a series of 12 high-altitude balloon launches across the country (from Vancouver to Inuvik to St. John’s, NL). These stratospheric balloons are equipped with video and data sensors to take a snap-shot of Canada’s atmospheric health at one time. Now we will be able to compare results with last year’s launch and start to track trends in our atmosphere! (*Launch date approx. dependent on conditions)

Things we will be monitoring:

  • GPS location
  • Accelerometer/Magnetometer motion
  • Temperature
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Humidity
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Ammonia (NH3)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Ozone (O3)

Check out our launch video from last year:
