Have you ever wanted to see a video zoom out from the ground all the way to outer space. Of course you do! Thanks to Page Stephenson we can do that. He attached a GoPro to a weather balloon and then used tracking software to find the camera.

Anyway, there’s a passage in Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man that goes something like this: the artist was sitting at his desk in school and wrote in his notebook home, street, neighborhood, town, county, country, continent, planet, universe.

This made me think of that.
