A potential problem is balloon retrieval – to get your camera and data back, unless it can capture & upload data as it goes. If sent up that high, the wind could carry it 30 or 40 miles away. May need to put some kind of GPS locator on it as well – to make sure you can find that sucker if you lose sight of it.

The next “escapade” appears to be studying the DWARF PLANET “CERES” in our solar system – with the “DAWN” space probe scheduled this month, March 2015. There are videos on YouTube that show lights on Ceres. Wtf?
