Kids do something cool.

>Proving that you don't need Google's billions or the BBC weather centre's resources, the four Spanish students managed to send a camera-operated weather balloon into the stratosphere.

>'We were overwhelmed at our results, especially the photographs. To send our handmade craft to the edge of space is incredible.'

I give them props for doing this for less than $200.

If the balloon would have an automatic overpressure vent, then it would have been able to rise substantially higher.
