In August 2010, we set out to send a camera to space.
It would have to survive 100 mph winds, temperatures of 60 degrees below zero, speeds of over 150 mph, and the high risk of a water landing. To retrieve the craft, it would need to deploy a parachute, descend through the clouds and transmit a GPS coordinate to a cell phone tower. Then we have to find it.
Needless to say, there were a lot of variables to overcome.
And without further ado, here is the video:
All I can say is Wow!
