LSU team on special NASA mission to get video of solar eclipse
BATON ROUGE – LSU students, staff and faculty are launching two high-altitude balloons to capture a never-before-seen look at the solar eclipse Monday.
The balloons will live-stream video of the moon's shadow as it crosses the continent. The project is part of a NASA-sponsored program that's part of the Louisiana Space Grant Consortium, led by LSU.
As part of the Eclipse Ballooning Project involving 55 teams from across the country, one balloon flight string will feature a video camera payload to live-stream footage of the total solar eclipse in which the moon will entirely block the sun for approximately 2 minutes on a path progressing from Oregon to South Carolina. Live footage will be available for public viewing on NASA’s website https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/.
