Oliver Yeh is a 20-year-old MIT student who went out with a couple of friends and spent $150 on a 2nd hand cellphone, a camera, a weather balloon and a polystyrene chilly bin to build a photographic rig. They sent it into near space and took incredible photos showing the curvature of the earth, proving that you don't need a big budget to get results.
