This is what NASA will be reduced to if the current administration has their way with the budget.

But definite kudos to this guy for taking the initiative to build his own psuedo spacecraft. I admire people who can do incredible things on low budget using elbow grease and their own ingenuity.

Ok I have to admit. I thought that this was going to be a rich dude who spent a ton of money.... That is freaking awesome.

Soon the Earth's atmosphere would be filled with high-altitude balloon. Everyone with a digi cam could try one of this trick.

Luckily for us they come back down to earth instead of floating around like space junk...

I'm going to have to try this some time.

Eh... why do people have to be negative. Great photo's. Doing this would freak me out. For some reason I get nervous when "I" put something high up in the air, worried if it's gonna hit someone... like a kite, when it comes down. Guess that's a phobia of mine.

If you try this at home, don't forget to consult the FAA or other local airspace agency.

How dare he NOT post it up on Instructables ;) (I looked, couldn't find it). Anyways, kudos to him. I wonder what controller he used, by the looks of it I'm guessing an Arduino?

750 dollas ist still alot for 1 try.

22 miles!!!

22 miles is no space! SATELLITES ARE THOUSANDS MILES HIGH!

Look at the pictures, the earth is barely curved. This is only twice as high as airplanes fly.
