Check out this cool video of a HD Camera and iPhone 4 being sent into space from New York using a weather balloon. Luke Geissbuhler and his son put together the mission and used the iPhone’s GPS to track the phone when it came back down to earth and found it up a tree 30 miles from the launch location.

Obviously Luke could have used any old GPS unit and not a £500 high end smartphone, but without all the attention how else is he going to raise funds for the next voyage?
