Sky Probe Sends a Beer Can Into Space

Check out this neat video of a high altitude balloon launch.  What makes this launch unique is that they sent up a Coors Light beer can in front of the video camera so you could watch the ‘cold activated can’ turn blue as the temperature drops.  There are probably easier ways to test if the cans work, but they wouldn’t be nearly as fun to watch.

They used one of our Adafruit GPS logger shield kit – v1.1

  1. And if the video didn’t contain music from SME, we users in Germany could see it. But now we are geof&%$ed, because of intellectual property problems… :(

  2. This is one of the coolest videos I’ve seen in a long time! Well done!!!

  3. Well done…Excellent execution. We know you recovered your camera equipment but for God’s sake man….Did you recover the Beer?!

  4. Did you recover and drink the beer? That is the full question!
