I am new to this forum and am hoping anyone out there can help me out as much as I can hopefully help you guys out. I am wanting to send a High Altitude Balloon up higher than ever before!! I have a some ideas that may assist in achieving this but am lacking some innovation. One of these ideas is to send up a pack weighing no more than 2 kilograms up with the lift of not 1, but 2 latex 1600 gram balloons. This of course will lower the initial volume in each balloon as they share the required helium needed for lift. Therefore the pack may reach a higher altitude before bursting as the two balloons have less helium than usual split between each other.
Otherwise my second option is to wrap the exterior of a 2000 gram latex balloon with the worlds lightest and thinnest fabric here imported from japan https://amaikeusa.com/about . Once its wrapped it should hold the balloon together stopping it from expanding and bursting. The only problem is retrieving the balloon. Any ideas on how to bring the balloon to descend or somehow remotely burst the balloon once it has reached a certain altitude?
Any contribution is really appreciated guys!
Love your work!
