Launched by a father and his seven year old in August, 2010, this Homemade Spacecraft/Space Balloon and video camera set up (housed in a takeout container) also got to see the curve of the Earth, climbing 19 miles high before the balloon burst. It includes a bit more nitty gritty from their experiment, with lots of onscreen notes. Great stuff if you’re itchin’ to DIY with your own weather balloon, video camera and iPhone. 

It also reminded me of Aerostat
