    Want to see something cool?

    The following blog is from a buddy of mine here at work. He got the crazy idea to attach a smartphone to a weather balloon and have it send back pictures. It got up to about 90,000 feet - high enough to see the curvature of the earth itself.

    Check it out and pass it on. The pics are pretty amazing.

    Looks like his server went down. Apparently from too much traffic. It will be back up soon.
