On 8th October 2012, Felix Baumgartner will travel up to the edge of the atmosphere in a capsule carried by a helium balloon. Then, at an altitude of approximately 23 miles high, he will exit the capsule and fall for an estimated time of just over 10 minutes, breaking the sound barrier while plummeting.
There has been a lot of hype recently surrounding the Nokia Pureview 808 mobile, mostly due to it’s 41 mega-pixel camera. Nokia have shown us pictures of people, buildings, scenery and animals, but there is one thing missing.
Nokia took it upon themselves to send Pureview to space, with a helium balloon, to see what images it would return. Annoyingly they only show us one picture, right at the end of the video below, but it’s pretty amazing to think that it was taken with a mobile phone. Technology is certainly moving very fast.
