taking AP just that little bit higher.....

22 miles high in fact. Check out the bit where he says he failed tiking AP photos with an RC heli, so thought he'd take AP photos of SPACE He may have failed at RC helis, but succeeded at space photography brilliantly!!!

Seems a lot more people are using helium balloons these days to get to really high altitudes. I recently read of a guy in south australia getting to 80,000 but his camera was getting condensation on the lens. A school in the UK sent a teddy bear in a space suit to 100,000ft. Also a school in the USA but can't remember where I saw the article.

I reckon this would be so cool to try out. Apparently you need CASA permission.

Yeah, I was suprised about that as well. I would just assume that I wouldn't get the thing back, lucky if I did. 50mile isn't that far at all

It may as well be a world away if it goes 50 miles east of me, and I assume you!

He's a Pom! Mate, they'd wear a suit in the shower if they could dry it quick enough afterwards.

Regrettably, mine is a hot-air balloon, which won't work for high altitudes

Hot glue and some helium, and we could fix that!
I wonder if you can buy weather balloons?
