Drift at 30 km-42 km on Vizag-Hyd-Sholapur line
Reward for information: April 30, 2018 under the auspices of the Department of Atomic Energy and ISRO. The balloons filled with Hydrogen gas, carrying Scientific instruments being conducted from Balloon Facility of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, ECIL, Hyderabad, the first ballon flight is planned around Nov 3rd week and it will be between 20 hours and 6.30 hours through night. It carries the scientific instruments for research at high altitudes and expected to reach heights between 30 km and 42 km depending upon the experiments being undertaken and the instruments will be kept at these heights for periods ranging from a few to 10 hours and then it will be released. Then it may land at points distant of about 200 to 350 kms and the drift will be on the Vishakapattanam-Hyderabad-Sholapur line.
