Father/Son Team Records Space Flight with iPhone, Weather Balloon, and HD Camera

A father and son team from Brooklyn, NY managed the incredible feat of sending a weather balloon and HD video camera into the edges of space -- tracking the journey using an iPhone with a GPS program and an HD video camera.

The craft was constructed from restaurant takeout containers and used chemical hand warmers to keep the iPhone and camera electronics warm at temperatures as low as negative 60 degrees.

It would be difficult to find an iPhone that has taken a more incredible journey.
