I have seen posts from time to time on the BB about balloons with 
amateur radio payloads on them.

I've got a question regarding the missions that carry payloads around 
the world.  What stops the balloons from going up until they explode do 
to the high altitude.  How are the packages kept from doing this to 
achieve such long distance flights?
