Space Balloon - HD Cam filming from the Stratosphere

"The balloon went to an altitude of more than 100,000 ft.
(to compare: a big airliner has an flying altitude of 35,000 ft.)

It traveled approximately 80 miles before the balloon burst and the payload fell to Earth by parachute.

The GoPro HD survived ambient air pressures as low as 1/100th of an atmosphere, temperatures as low as --60°C.

All you need need is a Camera, Weather Balloon and Duct Tape ;)"
