Okay, the idea seems interesting, and I'm guessing that 20 kilometers high is good enough to avoid stormy weather, but there seems to be a rather continuous cycle of replacement built into these things. That is going to increase costs.

Also, is there enough helium to go around ? I seem to recall that we're running out of that stuff.
