Balloon Recktilineator

i think balloons can be used too with real-time gps. if balloons 6 to 10 miles across from each other, move closer as they go straight up on a windless day, earth is concave, if away, it is convex.

My experience in the sky says there is no such thing as a windless day. Even if it feels still at ground level, on the way up there are invisible "currents" in all directions at differing altitudes.
