Amazing video from the Brooklyn Space Program

In case you’ve been living in a cave for the past 10 months (as I have been apparently) a father/son team sent a camera into space by way of weather balloon just because it was fun, a great learning opportunity, and a outstanding experience to be shared by all of those involved.  I can’t stress enough the value of these kinds of experiences as a way to connect with your children and to create a memory that will last a life time (and could potentially be passed down to their children).  If you haven’t seen this video, I encourage you to set aside seven minutes and check it out:

    • I don’t know about whether or not I’d like to be up there but it is an incredible experiment. They were able to reach about 19 mi or 30 km which is about a third of the way to the Karman line (the “official” line where space begins according to the International Aeronautic Federation), so they didn’t technically get into space but then again if they did the recovery of the camera would have been impossible. 🙂
