Lost GoPro Returns With Stunning Grand Canyon Footage
on 14 September 2015
Over two years ago, a group of Stanford University students launched a GoPro—attached to a weather balloon and with a cellphone to track its landing location—into space. Bad cell coverage ultimately led the team to believe the GoPro was lost forever, until just recently when a woman stumbled upon the device and returned it to them—along with some amazing footage. The GoPro floated 19 miles above the Earth’s surface, capturing stunning images of the Grand Canyon and the Arizona desert all the way from the stratosphere.
