Final Project Video Finished

Watch as six grade school girls’ (from Bowling Green, Kentucky) seemingly impossible, but absolutely achievable plan to launch a payload of cameras into the stratosphere to take measurements, photographs and video of the curvature of the earth and black of space becomes a reality. The most exciting part is around 4:40 when the weather balloon bursts at almost 120,000 feet (22.3 miles) above the surface of the earth and the payload begins to plummet back towards earth. They hope that they will be an inspiration to other young ladies and help encourage more of them to explore science, math, engineering and the art of making things with technology.

The final video for the project has been completed. I think it turned out pretty amazing. If anyone has any suggestions please leave them as comments on the blog page or the Vimeo page.
