That is pretty amazing.

Just 30 miles of drift from the launch site is pretty damn impressive, as is the altitude it reached. I'm pretty sure someone has skydived from the altitude before too. Makes me feel sick just thinking about that.

Edit: yep. 102,800 feet

Haha dont worry about it, the titles were completely different, and the links were also different. I found it by remembering the old details, "19 miles" and "weather balloon." It wouldnt have come up unless you got really creative with the search terms.

This is something old MIT students did this a year ago using a camera weather balloon and a few other items

Instant hand warmers kept things from freezing up and made sure the batteries stayed warm enough to work.
They used a beer cooler and got shots of the curvature of the earth
