Students Capture Amazing GoPro Footage of Earth from a High Altitude Balloon!
A small group of students at High Tech High School in San Diego successfully recovered a high altitude balloon that they launched to an estimated altitude of 90,000 -110,000 ft. The balloon carried a package that included a GoPro camera and a GPS tracker. This Blue Dot Education project was performed as a component of integrated work between the students’ Humanities and Science classes. The above image is a still frame from the GoPro video footage, which can be viewed in our video archives.
