iPhone Sent Into Space Records Amazing Video

This one falls in the “very unusual stuff an iPhone can do” category. A father and his son decided to take on the project of sending an iPhone at 100,000 feet above our heads using a weather balloon while recording the whole thing.

The helium filled balloon went 19 miles high and finally burst before making a 150 mph descent back on earth, where it landed 30 miles a way from the launch point. This is a 7 minute video of the whole 90 minute flight…

Incredible, isn’t it?
