Sending a camera to space is very simple, and if done correctly, the outcome is outstanding. It involves using a high altitude weather balloon 1200g, which holds the payload and films/ takes photos from space. I myself have done this project, and my video can be seen here. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ldzSXsLsUV4

Please pm me for a kit. Which is a lot cheaper then the one I will show you. You can expect the payload + balloon to go to 30km or 100,000 ft.
