Oh yeah? You launched an HD camera into the upper stratosphere when you were like 5 years old? Well I had already quit my addiction to play-doh by then. Which required real character?
But, seriously, this is one of the most beautiful things you will see today, or this week. Brooklynite Luke Geissbühler and his son launched this HD camera attached to a weather balloon after eight weeks of hard work. The camera survived. And we get this video.
My favorite moments are the longer ones of mostly silence, when the balloon has reached its apex, and you all hear is a slight electronic buzz set off against the curve of the Earth’s horizon. Pretty.
Family values. space adventure. Nice.
