Microsoft interns launching camera-equipped balloon into space

A group of Microsoft interns are sending a balloon with a camera into space. Called Nimbus it will launch tomorrow around 12PM Pacific. The event will be streamed live on the web. The interns will use a chase car equipped with radio antennas to track the balloon.

The launch website is currently counting down to the launch, with a little over twenty-four hours to go at this point. The audience will be able to determine where the camera on the balloon will look.

Will you be tuning in for the launch? Let us know below in the comments.
