A journey across the Stratosphere: An iPhone, an HD camcorder and a ball (VIDEO)
It seems one of the movies taken from the camera of NASA satellite but it is not. The story is much more bizarre and fantastic!
This wonderful video was made 2 million visitors the first day on the platform Vimeo. The reason is its realization.
It ‘was in fact shot by a strange team, father and son, with a simple iPhone (and its App) and a high definition camera.
Luke Geissbuhler, 40, and her 7 year old son Max, along with the precious help of his brother graduated in physics, designed a weather balloon with a camera and left free to twirl to the stratosphere, more than thirty miles from land.
The balloon left, the two electronic devices in space with excellent results.
On ‘iPhone application has been downloaded InstaMapper for the GPS location – Thanks to a sealed capsule made with waste materials, the mobile phone and camera (a Go Pro HERO), have survived wind gusts of 100 mph , temperature extremes of -60C and a rate of descent with peaks of 240 km / h.
The blast occurred at more than 30 kilometers from the Earth’s soil, with the eye of the camera intention to resume the curvature of the Earth and the darkness of the upper atmosphere.
The father has justified the matter simply told that he fulfilled the dream of his son
I leave the sensational video:) (the length of your movie would be about 70 minutes, cut for obvious reasons)
Another video on the equipment used:
For those who were wondering whether to do these type of businesses are needed before a written request to a specific section of a government (Civil Aviation Authority) and a subsequent approval, which is responsible for controlling air traffic and weather balloons.
