Floodge writes “High School students at Explore Knowledge Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada have launched a near space photography balloon which took over 2000 pictures of Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, and much more! The ‘space craft’ was built from used and recycled components for under 60 dollars and was inspired by MIT students Project Icarus in 2009.” Near-space photography via balloon isn’t quite new any more, but price is a great frontier to explore. And I’m glad that there’s a school called “Explore Knowledge Academy.”
