A Brooklyn man and his two sons recently made a remarkable journey. After weeks of building and testing, they drove up to Newburgh, NY and launched a spacecraft. It was essentially a weather ballon with a small insulated capsule attached to it that contained a Flip Cam and GPS locator. The video below is testament to their remarkable feat. It's also stunningly beautiful.
