World View and Scepter to Launch Methane-Detection Balloons in Texas’ Permian Basin

On the heels of the COP27 climate summit, Scepter, Inc., an emerging company that uses global Earth- and air-based data to measure climate gases and air pollution in real time, has today announced it is set to launch in January a stratospheric balloon enabled with methane-detection sensors in Texas’ Permian Basin, which will gather first-of-its-kind data on methane emissions. Tucson-based stratospheric balloon company World View is working closely with Scepter to bring the balloon capabilities to the mission.
