Science is really cool, there’s no denying that. What’s even cooler is the innovative science that has been happening right here on campus.
Last month, a team of UOIT physics students and professors from the Faculty of Science and the Physics Research Group set out to send a weather balloon into space. Think that’s crazy? Well, it’s apparently a thing – and such a big thing that there are teams from all across Canada with the sole intention to explore the edge of space with high altitude balloons. This project, organized for Science Rendezvous at UOIT on May 9, 2015, is part of a larger, Canada-wide High Altitude Balloon Experiment (HABEX).
