Hello all! Now that we’ve taken care of publishing excitement, let’s get back to the Theme of the Month: Weather Balloons!
Do you want to know something crazy? REALLY CRAZY?! I mean, CRAAAAAAAAAZZZZZY?!!!!
Alright. Prepare yourselves:
In order for scientists to collect the information they need to give us our daily weather reports, twice a day, every day, at exactly the same time, they send up weather balloons in over 900 different places across the whole earth!
That’s 1,800 weather balloons a day!!
That’s 657,000 weather balloons a year!!
That’s a lotta balloons. I’m kind of wondering why I’ve only ever found ONE.
