I just ran across this amazing video by a guy named Colin Rich – Colin has a great, cheap little weather balloon camera rig that he has launched twice now. Colin’s rig, the Pacific Star, is a small box made of light material using two Canon point and shoots – one for stills and another for video. The work is quite amazing – Colin was able to capture light from 125,000 feet above the surface of the Earth.
Beautiful. Check out these two videos of the Pacific Star’s two launches – last one first:
