One of the most inspiring videos I’ve ever seen. A completely home-made craft is engineered by a couple of kids as well as grownups and sent to the edge of space, bringing back incredible footage!
All it is is a HD camera in a polystyrene box, attached to helium balloons. At 90,000 ft the balloons burst and the box descends by parachute. An on board iPhone acts as a GPS tracker enabling its recovery later that day.
Watching this video really makes me want to do something like this!
