99 Red Balloons...

A coronal discharge toy balloon test would be easy - using a metallicised "birthday greetings" style balloon! Maybe a cyclo-olefin balloon would be a major custom fabrication task.
Even a small balloon of either type could perhaps be used as a self-sterilising sample-grabber that would rise separately of the main gondola, like the mortar idea I posted earlier. Since ground contamination concerns are still valid (see earlier post), the sampler would then be reeled in for in-situ analysis - somehow?
