This Picture Was Taken 39km In The Air With A Crappy Camera Attached To A Balloon

What do you get when you combine a styrofoam box, duct tape, orange paint, a weather balloon and two old Canon cameras? Apparently images that look like they're from NASA.

The Pacific Star II Project was conceived by Colin Rich. He set up two cameras, insulated them in a styrofoam box and attached the box to a weather balloon. The cameras were programmed to take three pictures every three minutes and then shoot a minute of video and this video is what came out of it.

Some people say the best camera is the one that's with you, I guess we should also include the camera that's 38,100 metres up in the air as well.
