Welcome to the UK High Altitude Society. We're a loose collection of people who are interested in launching unmanned high altitude balloons into near space. High altitude ballooning is a multi-skilled hobby which lets you explore the edge of space relatively cheaply - a basic flight can cost less than £200.
