Stratosphere

I saw this on accuweather.com and thought it was cool.

"Here is the project description in a nutshell :
We launch big meteorological balloons filled with helium
A capsule with cameras (photos & video) is suspended to the balloon
The cameras are programmed to take pictures every 7 seconds, during 2.5 hours
The balloon goes up to 33 km high, deep into the stratosphere, where it explodes after 1.5 hour
A parachute slow down the capsule back to Earth during a 1 hour fall.
Three GSM and satellite tracking devices inside the capsule helps us to recover the whole thing, 2,5 hours later, around 50 to 100 km from the launch base."

I found one of these while I was hiking in Perry CO.  Got a phone number off of it  (orange foam box) called  a guy , near Dallas where is was launched.
. It had two cameras in it and a cell phone attached to a ballon.
I sent the SD cards back to him and he gave me a $50 finders fee.
He did not want the cameras back. One was junk, the other worked with some adjusting.
The box had been sitting in the National forest about a year before I found it.
  I posted the sky/cloud pictures on

AR hunting.net

Outdoor Rec topic

There were some neat pics on the camera.
