Seton Hall Prep students send weather balloon into space

There was some cool video out of Seton Hall Prep in West Orange released Monday morning.



An inaugural STEM class sent a weather balloon into space the day before Thanksgiving.



The students wanted to get the balloon to 60,000 feet, but it got up to 95,000 feet.



The balloon would have been the size of a one-car garage at that altitude.



The students tracked the balloon on their phones, and it landed in a wooded area of Tenafly.



It took two months for the project to get off the ground.
