Paper Airplane in Space

On October 28, a team led by Steve Daniels, John Oates and Lester Haines launched a camera-equipped helium balloon that soared to an altitude of 90,000 feet before it collapsed. At that point, it released a paper airplane, named the Vulture I, also equipped with a video camera. The project named Paris (Paper Aircraft Released Into Space) was sponsored by The Register. The Vulture I was recovered from its landing spot in Spain. See the videos at YouTube and find out more from an index of articles at The Register. -via the Presurfer
