Think Outside the Atmosphere

Armed with only a weather balloon, an iPhone, and a make-shift carrier with a parachute; a father ventured out to show his son the wonders of space. Pure inspiration.

This video is a perfect example of what you can accomplish when you think outside the box atmosphere. Most fathers would take their son to the planetarium, or the local library to teach him about outer space. But this one took a common piece of technology, a little bit of technical know-how (including a pretty solid check list) and made a unique experience for him and his son happen on their own one weekend. He made a personal spacecraft…that actually flew to space. By thinking outside the atmosphere his iPhone reached a maximum altitude of 100,000 ft and gave us all an incredible view on the world.

So what are you doing to tackle your everyday problems? Are you allowing challenges to get in the way or are you looking all around (or above) for a possible change in course? Think outside the atmosphere.
