How Do You Get to Outer Space?

With a balloon, a camera, and an iPhone. That's all that Luke Geissbuhler used to fly a mini spacecraft 19 miles up in the air! (The iPhone gave the spacecrafts GPS coordinates, so that Luke could track it down when it landed. Check out the footage.
1:15 getting ready to launch.
2:10 countdown!
6:28 the batteries die!
