After two delays and two years of hard work, the Pella Exploring Near Space club finally got their experimental balloon off the ground Tuesday morning. Jim Emmert, an advisor with the group says he’s very happy with the way the launch went, adding seeing the balloons float east was a beautiful sight. The balloons were expected to land near Ottumwa.
