In past, many studies are done on cosmic rays but no one has yet thought to study the effects when there is a meteor shower. Our article introduces a novel experiment conducted on the peak time of the meteor shower and explains the procedure of the experiment. Firstly, our experiment is detecting the possible effects of the cosmic ray due to a meteor shower using High altitude balloon. It also explains cost-efficient cosmic ray detectors used in the stratosphere- Particle detector with a combination of photomultiplier sensor or tube, plastic scintillator. The detectors use a tracking mechanism to track the meteor shower. Although, stratosphere conditions can be created in laboratories like Temperature, Pressure, humidity and even some radiations can be generated. The reason why one should opt for HAB for this experiment is primary cosmic rays are observed enormously in high altitudes than the ground.

1- Lack of clarity
The authors should explain more clearly the proposed measurement, and describe the experimental setup to be used. For example, the title suggests a balloon, but there is no description of such setup. The caption of the figure talks about a scintillator detector, but there are no mentions of dimensions, materials, etc. I am not even clear on what they are going to measure. Last, this paper would benefit from feedback from a native English speaker.
1- Rewrite the introduction and the detector setup.
2- Explain the measurement to be realized.
