When Justin And Oliver Went Into Near Space With Duct Tape, $150, And A Beer Cooler

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

If you happened to miss this earlier in the month (which I did), armed with $150, three MIT students (including Eric Newton who's not in the above video) decided to see if they could get pictures in space - or near space - with low tech equipment.

And they did. You can see the pictures on their Web site as well as learn a little bit more about them.

But what's also great about this is some of the comments they've elicited:

I read your story on Yahoo about your little $150 project. I am a 7th grader and i think you are cool.

You and your team opened a new avenue to the entire process……..
Pretty cool huh?
