Video from a weather balloon that rose into the upper stratosphere and recorded the blackness of space. Visit brooklynspaceprogram.org to support the team

In August 2010 we set out to send a camera to space. The mission was to attach a HD video camera to a weather balloon and send it up into the upper stratosphere to filme the blackness bevond our earth. Eventually, the balloon will grow from lack of atmospheric pressure, burst, and begin to fall. 
It would have to survive 100 mph winds, temperatures, of 60 degrees below zero, speeds of over a 150 mph, and the high risk of a watter landing.
To retrieve the craft, it would need to deploy a parachute, descend through the clouds and transmit a GPS coordinate to a cell a phone tower.
Then we have to find it . Needless to say, there are a lot of variables to overcome. after 8 months of research and testing, we checked the weather patterns, picked our day, and drove to  newburgh, New York to launch.
