Back in June, a C-N-N team working with visiting international journalists tried an experiment to get video from the edge of space -- using a small camera, a smartphone and a weather balloon.
It took six months, but they finally got their video back -- with amazing results!
The launch went off without any problems -- the balloon and its payload zipped up 65-thousand feet to the stratosphere and took some incredible images of the earth.
But on the way back down, it seems the camera and its parachute hit some high-altitude winds... and the assembly broke apart.
A G-P-S tracker was used to recover the balloon, but the camera and phone were long gone.
Or so it seemed!
A Georgia resident found the phone in his backyard, and last month, with winter setting in, the camera was spotted in a tree that had finally shed all its leaves.
The camera still works, and this is the video found inside -- showing the entire trip, ending with a gentle landing in the tree.
