Gum in space

Another day at the office. I was contacted by an advertising agency and asked to send their product into space.

I decided that the most realistic way to do this was to use a balloon.
This is the first proposal and mockup.

The balloon should carry a GPS and be able to transmit its position to the ground in real time.
An onboard camera should record the view in HD, for post mission viewing, and send a standard def. video stream to the ground in real time, in case the balloon and playload was lost.
