Near-Space Balloon Cam with Arduino and APRS Radio | Make:

After reading the first DIY Space issue of Make: (Volume 24), my daughter and I were inspired to work on a near-space project. At the time, the standard recovery method utilized a cellphone programmed to communicate its position after landing. Unfortunately, once you let your balloon go, you had no idea where it was until it came back to the ground and phoned home. What we wanted was a way to get live reports from our flying machine while it was in flight.
