Project Icarus, Up Up and Away!

In UNCLE JOHN’S BATHROOM READER book THE WORLD’S GONE CRAZY is a bit about two MIT students, Justin Lee and Oliver Yeh, who built a gadget based on weather balloon technology and equipped it with iphones GPS things, and cameras. Their goal was to get so high up they the curvature of the Earth. 

Uncle John suggested to see the pictures it recorded search for “Project Icarus”. I did and the pictures are spell bounding – to me, anyway.

I also checked to see if it is on Youtrube. It is - Look up at the top.
