    Video: Homemade Spacecraft

    Video: Homemade Spacecraft

    Fit to Post: Yahoo! India News » Blog Archive Video: Homemade Spacecraft «

    An ingenious father-and-son duo in New York launched a HD video camera tied to a weather balloon 30 kms above the earth into the stratosphere and share footage that their camera captured in its incredible 100-minute journey. To get back the camera intact, they also attached an iPhone as a GPS device to send its coordinates upon landing to a cell phone tower. The video reveals that the camera, tied to a parachute that auto-inflated when the balloon burst due to atmospheric pressure, landed safely just 30 miles away from where it was launched.

    Not bad for a seven-year-old’s first tryst with space, eh?



    The original video has been posted on Vimeo here.

    Read more about it here.

    For more information about this experiment, visit the Brooklyn Space Program.
