Make a real spaceship for $500 and have the pictures to prove it

This is really one of the most amazing things I have ever seen on the web...

Here is a guy that took a simply retail Canon PowerShot digital camera, a weather balloon and a bucket of wires and reached 30,000m or 100,000 feet.

All of this for about $500 of parts.

I just get chills thinking of what we are capable of - and I get anxious for us to get to space NOW.

Let's raise the tax on gasoline to $6 a gallon, get off of oil, fix the grid, install efficient appliances, eat locally grown food and use the surplus energy and resources to get off Earth, go to Mars and the asteroids!

Ad astra!
