Caption A camera hanging below the MSU BOREALIS balloon took this photo at an approximate altitude of 100,000 feet on July 21, 2011. At this altitude the balloon had expanded to a diameter of more than 30 feet. It then popped and the camera and associated payload parachuted back to earth. Photo courtesy of MSU BOREALIS project.
