More info, and launch video is available here: http://rfhead.net/?p=366
The sound of the wind during the launch, and the undulating balloon,
reminds me of the ball in "The Prisoner". Didn't it make a sound like that?
Perhaps someday in the far future someone will recover the payload and
will see pictures from the balloon.
Oh yes, I was constantly reminded of 'rover' during the launch.

No camera on this flight. We needed to keep the weight as low as
possible to get altitude.
We've recovered all payloads that were launched in Australia. Doing the
same in the UK is a bit harder. :-)
Are you already planning the next launch? :-)
