NEAR SPACE BALLOONING - STRATOSPHERIC PHOTOGRAPHY

VIDEO

LAUNCH 4 : GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, ARIZONA

Hooked into an external battery pack and using a 64gb memory card, the GoPro Hero 2 lasted the entire flight. In fact, it kept recording even after the payload box plowed into the ground from 105,000 feet (the parachute was ripped off during a violent spin after the balloon burst). The GoPro was not encased in the waterproof housing. No lense fogging was experienced. As an experiment it was setup facing straight down. The video during the apogee phase of flight is hypnotic. If stared at long enough ones starts seeing objects and faces in the clouds.
