Rubber Chicken Flies To Stratosphere

What happens when you send a rubber chicken into the stratosphere? How would sunspots/solar radiation affect the rubber chicken? Rather than take the totally scientific approach students that are part of a group called Earth to Sky from Bishop, California, opted to send Camilla, the rubber chicken into space. The bird was outfitted with scientific sensors. Camilla was on loan to the group courtesy of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory where she serves as mascot in residence encouraging young women to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers. Camilla was tied to a helium balloon and floated 120,000 feet above earth to study solar storms.
