A 80,000 Feet Fall from Space [Video]

This one is kind of old (2010), but the footage is so impressive that I’ve decided to post it anyways.

From Kevin Macko:

We are a group of engineers/designers from San Francisco. This was our second balloon launch on 6/5/2010. Shot with 2 HD Hero cameras from GoPro. Launched from the California coast near Davenport, landed in Crows Landing 70 miles away. Peak altitude 80,000 feet. Acquired GPS, pressure, accelerometer, and temperature data with a Shadowbox. The payload was tracked with a SPOT satellite personal tracker.

  1. I have done this project 2 times!
    Here is the link to my second launch (LEIF MMXII: Geocache From Space) with music from Lindsey Sterling (the dub-step violin musician)
