Great video, sweet story.
I have seen videos like this before (where people sent stuff to the upper atmosphere). How come that things never end up in china or other place far far away...? If it get caught in at jet stream or just upper wind levels - they should be able to push a balloon many km/mi...

#2 I was wondering the same..but I bet that happened often enough..and since they never got the camera back it never made it to the interwebs :x

Actually #2 and #6 I think (this is my opinion) that the time it takes for the balloon to ascend is much too short for jet streams to carry it very far.

Let's say the fastest jet stream travels at 400Km/h... that would put the balloon 400Km away in an hour... Now the balloon reaches it's popping point in under an hour so it can't possibly travel to China... unless it get's snagged by a plane or something.

Now on the other hand... if the balloon is heavy enough, and ascends really slow, let's say it will pop in 10 hours, it may very well end up 3000km away... but why would you make it heavy if you want the camera back? :S

There are other videos showing balloons entering the stratosphere and coming back to earth but the animation of the train makes this one special.

One day someone will make a movie like this and their camera will fall on a child and kill him/her.

#13 the chances are tiny so long as the rocket isn't launched near a major population centre. You're probably as likely to be hit by a meteorite or chunk of ice falling from an aeroplane wing.

I'm not sure about this, but isn't there a little parachute to slow the descent in any case? There's definitely something attached by string to the train when the little boy finds it in the field.
