General view of a young boy examining a model of a stratoscope, a balloon-borne astronomical telescope designed to study the turbulence and granulation in the Sun's photosphere, as well as planetary atmospheres. Several other individuals and exhibit displays are visible in the background. Stratoscopes were conceived of by astrophysicist Martin Schwarzschild (1912-1997) and primarily flown from the 1950's to the 1970's.
