People have taken pictures in space for cheap:

The best part is when the balloon popped and the camera came crashing to earth . . .

It's a surprise it comes to an altitude like that and electronics doesn't fail....
Sure cold is a factor but, the cosmic rays at that altitude really bombard that thing...
It should get 3 - 5 greater amounts of rays...

Job extremely well done, It's very nice, just very very nice :D
For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

I can't believe that the camera survived the fall..

They must have had a parachute or something for the fall, right?
Robots are awesome!

Ya, on the site it mentioned a parachute that deployed on the way down. of course, it only came into effect when there was enough atmosphere to produce enough drag.

Imagine what would be going through their mind if the parachute had failed and all your work was going to be a total right off.
