After you watch the video of the fill and launch, click "show more" located
centered about an inch below the video window.  There are many interesting
links there including one with specifications for the balloon and Tracker.
(the tracker ran on only 4 AA Lithium batteries.)  One interesting thing I
noted is according to the Specifications page, this balloon was filled with
Hydrogen, not Helium.  The fill process might make the firefighters amongst
us a bit nervousJ
