Amateur Camera in Space
An interesting low cost experiment resulted in this incredible footage of a balloon with a camera climbing to 62 miles altitude. Hard to believe, but it seems real. The camera then came down to earth with a parachute and survived - without hitting someone on the head. Also fun is that the microphone was open all the time. There are sirens in the beginning, and even when the camera came down some stuff is audible. Check their home page for the details.
