STRAtospheric PLatform EXperiment
The STRAPLEX balloon campaigns offer students from European universities and high schools the opportunity to send experiments into the stratosphere using balloons filled with helium.
Depending on the mass of the experiment, STRAPLEX can reach up to 40 km altitude.
The STRAPLEX project was developed by the University of Porto, Portugal, in collaboration with ESA's Education Office.
