This past December 2010, Alex Baker and Chris Rose, two PhD students from the University of Sheffield managed to film Earth all the way from space by launching a video camera into space using a weather balloon. The entire process just cost them £350 and here's all what they used:
- Weather Balloon
- Foam Box
- Duct Tape
- Video Camera
- G.P.S. tracking device
Watch the process and the footage they captured below.
Truly amazing! Who knew capturing such footage can cost so little?
