One way conversation with God

Balloon_god

Letters to God: Ami Ben-Bassat developed a simple and elegant way of sending messages to God, combining ancient and modern technologies:

“A website was constructed in which a large number of letters and requests could be collected for delivery to the Heavens Above… Next, we programmed a terminal so that it can "talk" with the website, and automatically print the messages written on the site…

The platform chosen to launch the messages was a cluster of four large helium balloons, measuring 1 m in diameter, which together provided a lifting capacity of about half a kilogram. The cluster was tied to the end of the terminal's thermal paper ribbon, once the terminal itself was tightly bound to the launching table with special strings so that it wouldn't levitate into the sky along with the balloons…” Results of the ascending balloon cluster here.
