### the lift

- helium has lifting power of 1,115 kg per m³ so a small weatherbaloon should do the trick.
- A balloon with a diameter of 1 meter has 523 Liters of volume X 1,115 = 583 grams lift
- A balloon with a diameter of 1.2 meter has 904 Liters volume = 1008 Grams of lift
- 1,8 meter diameter is over 3 kg of lifting power

- sphere or here
- Tux in space

### the rig

Small servo opperated rig the holds a camera, serevo's are for pan/tild and opperating the camera, taking pictures.
