NASA’s Scientific Balloon Program provides a platform to conduct research in a near-space environment. Currently, both Earth and Space scientists utilized balloons to carry experiments in the Earth’s atmosphere. Such vehicles can also be used for the exploration of planetary atmospheres. The Soviet Vega-2 mission demonstrated this for a short duration in June 1985. Since that time, technology advances will enable longer duration missions to Venus as well as to Mars.
