GRANDVILLE, Mich.—The RoboDawgs’ latest experiment took them high above earth Thursday, July 25.

The Grandville High School robotics team launched a weather balloon from the school’s Robotics & Engineering Center around 8:30 p.m., allowing them to capture a West Michigan sunset.  The weather balloon was equipped with special film from New York which is meant to record gamma radiation in the upper atmosphere.

The team plans to get the film developed Friday.
