Forget Branson; see space on the cheap [vid]

I’d like to say I’ve grown wiser and more mature in recent years, but lets be honest: I still hate those kids that went to Space Camp. And with Sir Richard Branson taking his sweet time getting the commercial space tourism industry launched, options are dwindling for chumps like me to see the global horizon. That’s why this experiment done by a father and son in Upstate New York seems so awesome. Using little more than a weather balloon, GPS tracker and an HD helmet cam – the so very awesome GoPro HD – they got legit HD quality footage from space. Seriously badass.

    So rad. Also suck it. Space Camp was awesome. 🙂

    • I shake my fist at you!! I’m gonna buy a bunch of astronaut icecream and eat it while spinning on the merry-go-round at the park. I figure that’s close enough.
