From the Grand Canyon to the Stratosphere and Back! [VIDEO]
I'm a nerd and I'm not ashamed.
Perhaps you've seen video of various video cameras being attached to balloons and then released into the atmosphere. I love these videos, because I'm likely never going to be an astronaut ("training" does nothing for me).
A group of nerd friends launched a weather balloon two years ago. Two freaking years later, the camera was finally recovered by an Arizona hiker...who was probably thankful that it wasn't a dead body. Hikers and joggers always find those.
Anyway, enjoy the video!
