According to the information, the rocket installed in the high altitude balloon was taken to a height of more than 30.5 kilometers i.e. one lakh feet. The special thing is that this experiment was done more than once. They failed several times.
This experiment was completed in three years
You will be surprised to know this, but it took about 1000 days i.e. three years for Mark and his partner to complete this experiment. It is said that in the midst of completing the experiment, sometimes the GPS used to give problems and sometimes some technical fault used to occur.
