High above Spain

This is so cool. Boston.com’s Big Picture has photos from a weather balloon that floated high above the ground in Spain.

On February 28th, a team of four Spanish teenage students and their instructor from IES La Bisbal school in Catalonia launched a weather probe they designed and built themselves. Their helium-filled balloon carried a payload of electronics and a camera to take atmospheric measurements and photographs throughout the trip.
