Project Millenium Falcon

The question of this project was to solely see if a student with a budget likened to the budget of NASA could take as astonishing photos as the ones that have made people pensive to see our world from above. With a balloon bought from eBay, a Styrofoam box found in a storeroom, an old castoff camera and a tube of hydrogen I wanted to make this possible. Due to a lot of regulations created by the Swedish Air Control this took a time to prepare but once it was prepared I was able to finally send up my balloon which reached an altitude of 30 147 meters above the sea level.
