PAPER PLANE TAKES PHOTOS FROM SPACE

By Liz Goodwin


Three British space buffs attached a paper airplane and a camera to a helium balloon that soared 23 miles above ground, and captured amazing images.

"We did it because we wanted to see if we could — and we could!" IT expert Steve Davies told Sky News Online. The plane, which had a three-foot wingspan, was made of straws and covered in paper. At about 90,000 feet, the helium balloon burst.

Why does the guy have on knee pads????....

Well, I never really noticed but if they are knee pads, maybe he had to kneel on the ground to attach the plane to the ballon! Hell, I don't know!
