Careful with the sampling invagination

We'd have to sterilise the inside of the gondola sampler invagination but we'd need to make sure we could then flush it for fresh air to actually sample. We'd need to know how quickly the air in the invagination turns over with the outside to make sure it isn't stale, sterile air.
A fan or something could be used by might be very ineffective in the high stratosphere. But we could test this... If we had a hypobaric chamber...

  1. This sounds interesting! Hopefully not too complicated....Ok I shall ask the silly question - why the hypobaric chamber and what kind of people are liekly to have one?
