The event will showcase the results--including pictures, temperature, pressure, acceleration, measurements of the jet stream, and cosmic ray counts--from balloon flights conducted by the Experimental Physics class. The balloons reached altitudes of 85,000 feet or higher and gathered data from the troposphere and lower stratosphere.

Café Scientifique is an ongoing series that offers a space where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology for the price of a cup of coffee. Meetings take place outside of a traditional academic context and are committed to promoting public engagement with science. Additional information is available online at cafescientifique.org. Interested audiences can look forward to additional discussions on the last Tuesday of selected months in 2013.

Café Scientifique is supported in part by a grant to the University of Minnesota, Morris from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Precollege Science Education Program.
