up0171.jpgThe Southern Alberta Balloon Launch Experiment #3 (or S.A.B.L.E.3) successfully launched a weather balloon equipped with a digital camera to over 117K feet on August 13th, and the resulting photographs are just awesome.

The image to the right was the last image taken before the balloon burst (and yes, the camera keep taking photos the whole way down).
