A science project launched from Hollister Middle School made a debut on Youtube.

12 students at Hollister Middle School used data, such as weight and date of launch to send a weather balloon they constructed on a more than 200 mile, three and a half hour journey on Monday and discovered it made its way to Marshall County, Kentucky, the same day.

The teacher said the balloon is being mailed back to the school. The footage of the balloon launch is available on Youtube.
