Re: [Phys-l] homemade spacecraft!

As someone else has already noted - there's a lot of this going on these days.
FAA regs allow for lightweight packages with no rigamarole (sp?)

I'm surprised at how many groups are still using He (a VERY limited and nonrenewable resource) instead of the more buoyant H2 alternative.
And the H2 adds even MORE excitement to an already exciting adventure ;-)

A colleague just sent me this 7-minute video clip of a balloon with a
camera attached that went up into space. The balloon later expanded,
exploded, and the camera went into free fall. Very interesting! Very cool!

Might be a good project for students?
