Couple of kids, a camera, GPS, some helium - What could go wrong?

This is cool. A couple of MIT kids decided to see how cheaply they could get something into space. Project cost: $150. Success: Brilliant.

I can think of a couple of mechanical things I'd have done differently, but not a lot differently. And at least they remembered the batteries and the on-board heat.
