Wanaka could soon have a new feature in its world-famous clear skies. The airport is being eyed-up as a Nasa base. Scientists are evaluating the feasibility of launching a scientific balloon into the skies above Wanaka airport that could eventually provide information about such things as the origins of the universe and the big bang. The operations manager at the Nasa Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility is Dwayne Orr.
