To encourage and educate young women in STEM, a recent Raven Aerostar research and development flight carried a special guest to the stratosphere. Barbie® courageously made the trek to space via a Cyclone Zero-Pressure Balloon System to provide a beautiful display of our stratospheric platforms. This was then used to educate 25 Junior Girl Scouts from the Sioux Falls area at our "Solving Great Challenges: Connecting and Protecting the World" event in January 2020.
