I didn't see it. If you saw it but still couldn't find it then he's off the hook.

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.

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
