Brooklyn Space Program shows how it's done


A giant step for all kind! Using an orange foam takeout container and a weather balloon, a Brooklyn group of grownups & kids sent an HD video camera 19 miles into the upper stratosphere. When the weather balloon burst, the camera (recording footage the whole time) plummeted back to earth at over 150 mph, landing only 30 miles from where it was launched.

See the video (6 min.) here.
