How high can hellium balloon goes?

Jean-Sébastien Busque launched a hellium balloon with a video camera, a still camera, gps and a ham radio. It worked! Balloon got up to 28km +/-. It traveled about 100km east from the launch site (100 km south east of Montréal, Canada).

Look at the photos... They are amazing!!

Too bad this hellium balloon can't carry humans.... Otherwise, it would be nice to ride on that!! I guess we need to wear astronaut suit as well...
