Space Photography

I've put it in here as 'technically' it's to do with aviation :D

Proving that you don't need Google's billions or the BBC weather centre's resources, the four Spanish students managed to send a camera-operated weather balloon into the stratosphere.

Building the electronic sensor components from scratch, Gerard Marull Paretas, Sergi Saballs Vila, Marta­ Gasull Morcillo and Jaume Puigmiquel Casamort managed to send their heavy duty £43 latex balloon to the edge of space and take readings of its ascent.

You have to say that it a pretty impressive thing for four 18-19 year olds to achieve successfully.

I'm now going to work on my UAS that will hover outside the female's accom block and take snaggy phots...


Blimey that is impressive!
Wonder what the chances of any 18/19 year old products of the British education system managing something like that are.
