latex balloons degrade very fast when exposed to UV
especially so at high altitude. also get brittle at 130 deg

Do you know this as a fact, or something you have heard?
And degrade fast, how fast is fast?

The latex balloons degrade quickly in UV so a longer flight
can be realized with a UV resistant envelope, Ron makes
these in his shop.

One of these balloons was what Alan Adamson used
on his 2 year flight. Ron originally did flights
on latex balloons with distance and longevity as

How about a race?
I’ve yet to do a round
the world floater and
would like to. Each of
us put out $$$ for
attending GPSL (when
we can get there)
which could be spent
on a floater project.
presentations could be

broken down into
unlimited class, party
