Most kids see balloons and think about birthdays, balloon soccer pulling dastardly pranks on unsuspecting parents. This family, father Luke Geissbuhler and his young son Max out of Newburgh, NY, thought to hook up an HD camera and an iPhone and send the package up into space. Seriously. [Video below the fold.]

Now that’s backyard astronomy. And just a really freaking cool thing to do with your kids.
