ASTHROS; a stadium-sized balloon of astronomical telescopic science

ASTHROS, both a balloon and telescope unit, is to be launched into the Stratosphere, starting near the Antarctic until it raises to around 24.6 miles. There, while barely in-atmosphere, its far infrared telescope will be able to avoid most of the earth’s infrared light blocking atmosphere, and study galaxy and star related mysteries.

I mean for a camera, even with elon's Space X revolutionizing rocket launches, this has got to be the cheaper way to go, so....good budgeting? Also, looking forward to the images.
