Hi

Sorry not sure if this is going to be a duplicate post, but I found this article quite cool.

Link is bad. I'm dying to see how an amatuer takes photos of the Earth from space.

Well actually near space but really cool to think we all could take photos like that.

Cool photos, but how far away did the camera fall when it's 22 miles up and it probably took hours to get up that high? Even with a tracking device he was still lucky to recover it.

22 miles - or 116,160 feet !

He only used a Canaon Sure Shot camera and tracked the device by gps used the car SatNav to track it as it fell by parachute back to earth.

All for only £500 !!!!

A great way to spot ufo's

Actually from the article

Mr Harrison has recovered it from up to 50 miles away.


I would have thought it could have been even more, given winds up there.

Yes it's cool, but you're right about being a duplicate of sorts, there's already a thread about project Icarus here:
