Project Icarus: take shots from outer space with 150$

Project Icarus is a damn interesting approach to high altitude photograpy.

The guys used off-the -shelf hardware (a Canon A470, a Motorola Cellphone, an energizer battery) to take photos of inner space as high as 93000 feet (28 km).

The results, as you can see, are astonishing
