GoPro makes these rugged HD cameras that are used a lot in capture sporting events, such as surfing, auto racing, sky diving, etc. . In this video some guys build a box with a few cameras attached to a balloon and let it float into space. Once the balloon popped, they used a spot tracker to locate where their box landed. Enjoy the clip!
