In June 2013, a group of friends launched a weather balloon a few miles from Tuba City, Arizona. Enjoy the video of our launch preparations, video footage, and some data analysis of the flight.
Max altitude: 98,664 ft (30.1 km)
Time of flight: 1 hour, 38 minutes
Payload: GoPro Hero3, Sony Camcorder, Samsung Galaxy Note II phone. The GoPro and camcorder were recording video footage, while the phone was taking still images. More photos to come, shortly!
