Caption: Weather balloon launch. Meteorologist inflating a weather balloon before launch. It contains helium gas, allowing the balloon to rise many kilometres through the atmosphere. This launch is to test the E-Link communications system used to transmit data from the balloon to the ground. Weather balloons can carry a range of sensors into the atmosphere, returning data on ozone loss and other details of atmospheric chemistry. This launch is taking place in the Arctic.
