back to article Wind-up robot in near-space musical experience

It seems that world+dog has either sent something into the upper atmosphere suspended under a meteorological balloon, or is poised to go airborne with some form of stratospheric mission, so it's nice to hear of a project which has a little something extra.

      I'm wondering if there exists a space-to-Earth descent video of an inflatable whale, possibly with Jean Michelle Jarre's "Oxygene" or the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's "Whale Theme" dubbed onto it?

    LOHAN burroo take note ?

    The video was great fun, but it may be the Special Projects Burroo can learn something from this.
