A few weeks ago, I was contacted about building an Apollo spacecraft model to fly on one of the Space Hardware Club research balloons as a tribute to the first moonwalker.

It eventually flew last Friday morning as a part of a NASA outreach project with a couple of local middle schools, and I had stayed up all the previous night rigging a pair of Go-Pro cameras to watch the model and the ground during the flight.

Here are the fruits of my labor:

I'll post more info as it becomes available. I wasn't able to attend the launch; I had to run an exam review session for my PASS students ( "New Job" thread").

That's one small step for the Space Hardware Club , one giant leap for tribute-kind.
