Flying through a fireworks display with a GoPro camera and a drone will make you love fireworks all over again
So last night you probably saw some fireworks if you live in the US, and no matter how beautiful they were, from your vantage point on a hill or a rooftop or wherever, you were still on the ground looking up. This video from GoPro puts you right in the middle of the smoke and color and explosions, and it’s honestly the most amazing fireworks video you’ll see today, probably this year, perhaps your entire lifetime.
GoPro cameras attached to a balloon capture an 80,000 foot fall from space
Led by Kevin Macko, a San Francisco-based space exploration team of engineers and designers, known as the Astronewts, launched a balloon into the sky in June 2010 from Davenport, California that was carrying two GoPro HD Hero cameras. At the peak altitude of 80,000 feet, the balloon burst causing it to fall back to Earth, all the while, the cameras wre capturing footage to its landing spot 70 miles away in Crows Landing.
