    A return to Wanaka for NASA's scientific balloon programme again, after a three year hiatus.

    A return to Wanaka for NASA's scientific balloon programme again, after a three year hiatus.


    From mid-April, NASA will be working to perfect the super-pressure helium-filled balloon - which is about the size of Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium.

    They hope to be certified as a long-duration flight vehicle - which is key to supporting more complex science missions.

    The launches aim to help a 2021 mission to determine the life cycle of interstellar gas in our galaxy.
