This photo was taken with a $45 point-and-shoot, and it wasn’t by an astronaut sitting in a space shuttle!
Two regular guys sent their cheapoid camera 27 miles up into the sky by attaching it to a balloon! Duct tapes n’ elbow grease is all it takes sometimes, kids (see our DIY balloon tutorial!).
This is unbelievable. Take a look at the video! (I wonder if you can see my town from some of these shots — Oxnard is less than 30 miles from me.)
