Seeing space from a balloon

4 students and their teacher proved that you don’t need Google’s billions or the BBC weather centre’s resources to get to the stratosphere.

Building the electronic sensor components from scratch they managed to send their heavy duty £43 latex balloon to the edge of space and take photos and readings of its ascent.

They took some pretty cool pictures that you can see here.

I found this first here, but you can get some more information here.
