Amazing low-tech visit to the edge of space -- with a Ventura County angle
This fellow used styrofoam, duct tape and two cheap digital cameras bought on Ebay to capture some stunning images from the edge of space. Nearly as impressive, he managed to find the cameras after their 35 minute descent, all the way to an olive orchard outside Santa Paula, CA.
At the top of the ascent, the sun shines bright in the inky black of space, the curved horizon of the Earth marking the end of the atmosphere, California nearly 24 miles below.
