Take a photo of Earth for only £500? Why spend billions!?

What happens when you put an experimental mind + digital camera + a GPS device + some duct tape + a balloon + some helium together? You get a million dollar photo at only a mere three figure. Seriously, the list of items needed looks like an everyday kitchen list.

Robert Harrison (yes, THE experimental mind), christened this the Icarus project which is literally in his own words, 'a home brew project to send a camera high into the stratosphere to take pictures of the Earth from near space.'

'Nuff words. Look at these awesome home brewed photos :)via The Icarus Project
