This video totally rocks!

A father and son team, along with a group of supporters launch a weather balloon into space as part of the Brooklyn Space Program. Their goal was to film the ascent and descent of the balloon as it rose into the upper atmosphere. Visible on the HD video is the curvature of the earth and all the associated audio. The silence speaks volumes.

If you are wondering whether they were using the iPhone to film this the answer is no. The video was taken with an HD camcorder and the iPhone was used as a geo-locator because of its onboard GPS chip.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
