or in the paper, or online...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_yorkshire/8587749.stm

i must say i was pretty impressed.
the funny thing is i have been trying to buy a cheap canon point and shoot for the same reason
... just not so grand!!
i was starting small, (or am if i get a cheap camera) by suspending it under a kite.

why did i get this idea i hear you ask...

i found this... http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK


so if anyone comes across someone who has a canon point and shoot that
they want to get rid of cheaply......

Oooooh! I reckon we have enough creative AND nerdy AND tech people on this site to get together and think up a Sciencey project that would get us in the news, something similar to that guy that will cost hardly anything, but come from clever thinking!!

Stories like that - someone using their noggin and beating the boffins at their own game, etc (the news report mentioned how much NASA would have spent to get similar pics!) really encourage me about human cleverness. At least there is SOME intelligent life down here lol!
