UX-1 Balloon launch

 Build your own small-scale, high-altitude balloon  out of styrofoam, masking tape, electrical kit and a 'consumer-grade' weather balloon.
Two guys  have reached an estimated 52000 feet using one they had built earlier.
The UX-1 Balloon was launch on Saturday May 14, 2005, 10am Eastern time.
Cool pics and video were taken throughout the mission.
 Next flight is in approximately 2 weeks with 100,000 feet the goal.
