    The four Spanish teenagers from La Bisbal school in Spain’s Catalonia who, with the guidance of their teacher Jordi Fanals Oriol, sent a weather balloon right up to the edge of space, taking readings and shooting photos with a Nikon Coolpix camera. They kept track of it the whole way up using sensors communicating with Google Earth.

    The equipment consisted of a camera which they tied to a balloon. The set-up went to an altitude of about 20 miles taking some really neat pictures of the Earth’s surface.

    On February 28th, a team of four Spanish teenage students and their instructor from IES La Bisbal school in Catalonia launched a weather probe they designed and built themselves. Their helium-filled balloon carried a payload of electronics and a camera to take atmospheric measurements and photographs throughout the trip.
