This was so exciting I had to break my usual practice of only writing about music or computing… A father & son team from the US have launched an HD video camera tied beneath a weather balloon into space! They tracked its flight and descent as best they could using mass-produced GPS equipment and were able to recover the footage once it crash/landed.

A good friend, Mat Connolley from web design partnership Iteracy, brought this to my attention, by linking up the story here.
