Far Horizons is a program of Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL, USA. One project of Far Horizons is a High Altitude Balloon (HAB) platform which affords researchers of all ages access to "near space" with a maximum altitude of approximately 100,000 feet (30480 meters). The Far Horizons HAB platform is being documented here in the hopes that it will facilitate the experiments of other people with an interest in HAB use and research.
