Jonas McGee, 11, researched the project with his parents, Earl Gray and Robin McGee, his grandmother, Diane Gray, 81, and six others in Lake Stevens. They prepared a weather balloon full of gadgets to send into space on Easter Sunday.
The project was part of the Global Space Balloon Challenge. It's an educational effort in which teams from around the world prepared high-altitude balloons to launch into near space.
The Lake Stevens team recovered their balloon's payload. Now, they're sharing the data, video and photos they collected. The team captured views of the curvature of the Earth, the border between the atmosphere and the black of space.
