NearSys Flight 2016F
The most recent near space flight of NearSys occurred on July 2nd. On this mission the balloon reach 94,413 feet before bursting near Marsing, Idaho. One thing that made this flight unique is that it carried a thermal imager into near space, which I believe to be the first time a thermal imager has been to near space. Here is one of the images taken at 94,000 feet.
