Abstract

A thin superconducting solenoid was launched by using a large balloon up to an altitude of 36.5 km in Northern Canada in the summer of 1993 as a core facility for the cosmic ray spectrometer, BESS. The magnet was excited up to 1.0 T in persistent current mode on the ground and was launched being attended with 2.7 G shocks. After 17 hours successful flight, it was discharged on the sky and made a mild descending and landing by using a parachute for recovery. The magnet was safely operated without ploblems during flight in 1993 and contributed to an second observation in the summer of 1994.
