Abstract
EUSO-Balloon was launched by the French Space Agency CNES from the Timmins base in Ontario (Canada) on the moonless night of August 25, 2014 UT. After reaching the floating altitude of about 38 km, EUSO-Balloon imaged the UV intensity in the wavelength range 290 - 430 nm for more than 5 hours, before descending to ground, using the key technologies of JEM-EUSO. A detailed and precise measurement of the UV intensity in different atmospheric and ground conditions was achieved. The instrument detected hundreds of laser tracks with similar characteristics to Extensive Air Showers. A review of the main physics and technological results obtained by EUSO-Balloon is presented.
