Gigantic NASA balloon flies over South America

In recent weeks, a giant balloon has flown over South America.

Although it was initially suspected that it was another spy balloon or UFO, like those seen in North America in February, it turned out to be an object launched by NASA for scientific purposes.

It is a new advanced telescope carried by a balloon the size of a soccer stadium (about 100 meters long) and flying at an altitude of 40 kilometers.

The Super Pressure Balloon Imaging Telescope (SuperBIT) was designed to search for dark matter in space and launched on April 16 from Wānaka, New Zealand.
