Wales from space - thanks to schoolchildren's camera

These photographs were taken by a camera launched more than 15 miles up by primary school pupils at Ysgol Gymraeg Aberystwyth.

With the help of experts from Aberystwyth University, they build a capsule and launched it from the playground with a helium balloon on Thursday morning.

The camera photographed Cardigan Bay, the Llyn Peninsula and the south west of England, before the balloon burst.

After a journey lasting 2 hours and 51 minutes, it landed in a field near Llandrindod Wells.
