Two Fantastic Videos for Earth Week

The first of the 33 miners trapped for 69 days in a collapsed mine, half a mile underground, have been rescued. If you missed the news footage like I did, thanks to technology you can still watch it or watch it again online. What better way to celebrate Earth Science Week than by watching video of the Chilean Miners Rescue.

Another great video was forwarded me this week that I thought was worth posting is the Father and Son Film Outerspace video. Using a weather balloon, a video camera, and an iPhone, this father-and-son team managed to launch their homemade spacecraft up to nearly 19 miles into the stratosphere and capture amateur, yet impressive footage.
