Joshua Strausbaugh, Belle Valley School science teacher, speaks with a local farmer in Mount Carmel, Illinois after his students travelled 140 miles to recover their high-altitude computer, launched in Belleville, Illinois, which analyzed data ranging from altitude and coordinates traveled to temperature and pressure, Nov. 30, 2018.
