GoPro Camera Films Life above the Clouds (10 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       22 Sep 2015       4961       3

This dude thought it would be a fun idea to send a GoPro camera into space and this is what he saw.

 

Here he is, sending GoPro into the air.
Clouds.
Leaving the clouds below.
And here we are at the edge of earth.
Balloon pops.
"I'm falling! Help!"
Back on the ground. Welcome back, buddy.

Those pieces are parts of the balloon that explode after reaching a certain height.
That happens because the higher it goes the less pressure it has making the gas inside expands exploding the balloon.

thank you. what is the smaller balloon and the box for? ballast, and a way to make a smoother re-entry perhaps?

also it's hard to believe that traveling that high, wind wouldn't set it down very far from the launch point. that's what particularly amazes me.
