Justin Hamel’s recently successful Kickstarter project was to help him launch a giant balloon into space. The balloon — fitted with a HD video camera — would soar to 130,000 feet, capturing images of the Earth’s surface from outer-space. After one unfortunate gaff, Justin and pals have retrieved their first batch of successfully rendered footage. The results are breath-taking.
A few of my favorite shots are below. The rest can be seen on his project blog, here. Who knows … maybe they’ll manage to capture another, successful Kickstarter project their next time up? (Kidding, of course!)
