Sunrise Project

gondola
A team of scientists and engineers in HAO and EOL has built this 23-foot gondola as part of the Sunrise project, an international program to measure magnetic fields, dynamics, and thermal properties of the solar atmosphere. Carried approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) into the atmosphere by a giant balloon, the gondola will contain a 1-meter diameter solar telescope that can capture high-resolution images of the Sun's outer surface.
