QinetiQ-1 Balloon Launch Canceled at 11th Hour

2003 Sep 03

The QinetiQ-1 balloon team's attempt to break the world record for human high-altitude balloon flight was canceled around one hour before the planned launch this morning due to a breach in a seam of the huge balloon during helium filling operarations.

The two pilots were in their space suits and virtually ready to go.
