Voyage into the stratosphere
Intro
Two UK explorers plan to fly a balloon to 132,000 ft (40,000 m) higher than any manned envelope has gone before. Andy Elson and Colin Prescot are waiting for the right weather window in August or September so they can safely launch QinetiQ 1 from a ship off southwest England. BBC News Online will follow their progress.
