SuperBIT (the Superpressure balloon-borne imaging telescope) is a football stadium sized balloon that will float around the world at 40,000 feet in the stratosphere to take precision images of space with a precision stabilised telescope suspended from the bottom. The project hopes to achieve Hubble level image results without the cost of a launching an orbital telescope into space.
