    Video from a camera attached to a weather balloon that rose into the upper stratosphere and recorded the blackness of space. Seven-year-old Max Geissbuhler and his dad Luke Geissbuhler dreamed of visiting space. Armed with just a weather balloon, a video camera, and an iPhone, they basically did just that.

    That is one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen. Where's the Thanks Button when you need it? :D

    Saw this the other day. Was a brilliant watch and such a shame the batteries died 2 minutes before landing.
