Raspberry Pi gets launched into atmosphere to take near-space pictures

The Rapsberry Pi is an impressive mini-computer we saw launch recently, and it's already won the hearts of many. An individual from the UK named Dave Akerman was apparently looking to have a real adventure with his new Pi, so he strapped the gadget to a weather balloon for it to be sent up into Earth's atmosphere to take pictures from near-space. And it actually did quite well. The photos can be viewed on Akerman's Flickr account.
