Father and Son Launch iPhone Into Space
Backyard Adventures. Cool fun mini-expeditions helping students and parents become modern argonauts. Second in my series of Backyard Adventures is The Final Frontier.
ASSIGNMENT: Your adventure, should you choose to accept it, is to find a star-gazing adventure right in your own backyard.
Example: Watch this video of the ultimate backyard adventure. A father and son send a HD video camera into space on a balloon, and used an iPhone as a GPS tracking system. It reminds me of when I was a kid, my dad and I made time-lapsed photos of the stars to track the orbit in across the night sky.
