SABLE-3, Southern Alberta Balloon Launch Experiment #3, is a very impressive experiment in which a specially prepared point and shoot camera was attached to a helium filled balloon. The results are amazing. The camera was set-up with a tracking device and configured to snap a photo every minute. In 2 1/2 hours the balloon reached maximum altitude of 22 1/2 miles, the edge of our atmosphere! The write up and photos are impressive. This is definitely worth checking out.
