Homemade Spacecraft from Luke Geissbuhler on Vimeo.
Video from a camera attached to a weather balloon that rose into the
upper stratosphere and recorded the blackness of space.
I read about this video at PetaPixel, a photography blog, in a post by Michael Zhang:
"Luke Geissbuhler and his kids decided they wanted to send an HD video camera high into the stratosphere, so they spent eight months researching and testing for their project before finally launching their Go Pro Hero HD-laden balloon from Newburgh, New York. The balloon rose for 70 minutes to a height of 100,000 feet (19 miles) above the Earth before popping.
The video includes audio, so you get to experience what it looks and sounds like to be floating 19 miles above the Earth, surrounded by the blackness of space"
What are you going to do over the October school holiday?
