    Family Science Project Sends Video Camera to the Edges of Space

    Luke Geissbuhler and his kids decided they wanted to send an HD video camera high into the stratosphere, so they spent eight months researching and testing for their project before finally launching their Go Pro Hero HD-laden balloon from Newburgh, New York. The balloon rose for 70 minutes to a height of 100,000 feet (19 miles) above the Earth before popping.

    The video includes audio, so you get to experience what it looks and sounds like to be floating 19 miles above the Earth, surrounded by the blackness of space.



    This has been posted before can't remember who though, just putting it in the correct section. Vid here.

    This was from last September but still a good watch. I wonder if they did anything else.
