Spectacular Video of Homemade Spacecraft Flight

This is private space flight at its best. Luke Geissbuhler spent 8 months researching how to launch a small weather balloon with a camera that would travel to the edge of space, take video of the trip, and return the camera safely to the ground! Incredible and fascinating to watch. You’d be amazed at how many things there are to understand about a simple balloon that is constructed to stay within the legal requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. You also won’t believe how far this thing went. The video of the Earth is like what you see from the Space Shuttle.
