Abstract

The NASA Balloon Satellite, which is a balloon that is sent 100,000 feet into the upper atmosphere to collect data, and stream that data live to NASA webpage, will carry experiments that are part of a payload. My experiment will be a Neulog Sensor Logger that will collect data on the UVA and UVB exposure rate of light from the upper stratosphere and on the ground. Data measuring the exposure rate of the light will also be collected from robot welding cells or sections in which one robot will be measured in comparison to the six robots in another cell. The theory is that the UVA exposure does not change from the upper stratosphere to earth nor does the UVA exposure change no matter the number of robots. The UVB rays should decrease in exposure rate of the light as they enter into Earth’s atmosphere unlike the UVA. The significance with UVA and UVB radiation is that in dangerously high levels of radiation can cause damage to the cornea of the eyes.
