    Easily the greatest thing I've seen done with an iPhone.

    Thanks for the report.

    Awesome story.

    I want to see somebody actually use the iPhone 4 to record the journey. I am sure Facetime would be awesome while it is going up.

    Jeez, folks, a little kid and his dad sent a iPhone (3, 3GS, 4, whatever) and a camera 19 miles up (space, stratosphere, whatever), the camera took pictures, the phone sent gps back so it could be recovered from the top of a tree in the middle of the night 30 miles from where it ascended. They weren't the first (except for the iPhone part). Why all the quibbles? Why all the nitpicking?

    I assumed it was a 4, it didn't say it was a 4. The story SAID a separate camera and phone. Nineteen miles UP! You go up there and tell me it wasn't on the edge of space. Let's let it go, it was a great adventure.

    Not even close. It would have had to go up hundreds more miles just to breach the outer boundaries of the atmosphere.

    it would be great if the writer got things right... IT WAS NOT AN IPHONE 4 AT ALL USED...

    THEY USE A GO PRO VIDEO CAMERA AND A SMASHED IPHONE 3G FOR GPS TRACKING..

    So what did we learn from this video? If any of you ever plan to take a balloon trip to the Stratosphere....make sure you carry your iPhone so when your trip goes horribly wrong..they can at least find your pulverized frozen body in a remote Columbian jungle. And be sure to take a few facial pics and horizon pics on your way down for us!

    Last time I checked, it was an iPhone that went to space and that's what they said. Also there are no jungles in Columbia university, but there are in Colombia, which is spelt differently

    iPhone was used just for tracking the package after it fell back to earth...they even said that in the video. A Go Pro Hero HD camera was used for the actual video.

    Columbia.....Colombia. There have been much more horrific grammatical and spelling errors on this site. I'm pretty sure 99.99% of the people knew what I meant.

    It's cool, but there really was no necessity to use an iPhone because its role in this was just GPS. So, this is just one cool science project, not iphone anything. It was fun to watch though.

    Yea, so an iPhone did go to space

    Default iPhone in Space
    Hi
    Since the orientation of the iPhone's screen is determined by the accelerometer, which relies on gravity, wouldn't it be fairly hard for someone to use the iPhone in space? There needs to be a zero gravity mode for the iPhone or else it's just not the coolest phone anymore.

    The whole article is written as if it was an iPhone that did the job. Only one sentence mentions an external HD camera which he doesn't even mention what model it is.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.
