Homemade Spacecraft

After the disappointing news that Red bull is stopping its Stratos project because of some dick, this video made me smile.
Seven-year-old Max Geissbuhler and his dad Luke Geissbuhler dreamed of visiting space. They formed The Brooklyn Space Program and armed with just a weather balloon, a video camera, and an iPhone, they basically did just that.

This isn't the first time someone has made a DIY spacecraft and captured the curvature of the earth and the blackness of space.
Check out our post of Robert Harrison's weather balloon spacecraft.
