The balloons only have one life and the only way of finding out whether they work is to attempt to fly around the world.
The jet stream is a very strong force and pushing a balloon into it is like pushing up against a brick wall, but once we got into it, we found that, remarkably, the balloon went whatever speed the wind went.
