Whatever happen to this project, I found this searching the net:

I have a poster for something like this in my room — five years ago, it was something proposed to be flown into tropical cyclones and severe thunderstorms for research purposes. It’s called “Atmospheric Voyager,â€￾ and I’ve heard no word on that either.
