As you read on the weekend, I’ve spent the past few days in Newfoundland, Canada, peeking in on the life of English explorer David Hempleman-Adams as he prepares for his world-record attempt at crossing the Atlantic in the world’s smallest helium-powered balloon.

I managed to grab a few minutes before he departed into the air, to discuss his trip, and the technology which he carried aboard. Unfortunately the sound quality isn’t brilliant due to the whipping Canadian wind atop Signal Hill in Newfoundland, but you’ll get the gist of it, promise!
