My first oscilloscope was one of those. Tiny little round screen, black crinkle finish... I got it in 1960 or 61; WWII surplus. Found it at some sort of hamfest or other electronics swap meet.

You mean like in A.E. van Vogt's book, The Voyage of the Space Beagle -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T... -- ? It was old (published in 1950; I wasn't born until 1952) when I found it in the school library. My first piece of science fiction. I was in 3rd grade.
Thanks. Left out the word "join." Not at my best today.
Here's a balloon launch video from Instructure, a company that helps create open source education systems. The point of their balloon work (and Jamel's) is not that they get to boast about what they're doing, but so you and people like you say, "I can make a functioning high altitude weather balloon system with instrumentation and a decent camera for only $1000?" This is a lot of money for an individual, but for a high school science program it's not an impossible amount. And who knows? You might break the current high-altitude balloon record of 173,900 feet. Another, perhaps more attainable record is PARIS (Paper Aircraft Released Into Space) which is currently 96,563 feet. Beyond that? Perhaps you'll want to take a crack at beating Felix Baumgartner's high altitude skydiving and free fall records. And once you are comfortable working with near space launches, perhaps you'll move on to outer space work, where you'll join Elon Musk and other space transportation entrepreneurs.

It did, but only a few minutes. I had to go to the VA for an electrocardiogram. I had to leave before the transcription was done, and the appointment ran a bit longer than I expected. Sorry about that. My heart still seems to be beating, or so they say.
Thank you for your courteous request, mythosaz. Serving good people is always a pleasure.
