In June 2013, a group of friends launched a high-altitude near space balloon a few miles from Tuba City, Arizona. The amazing footage of the Grand Canyon area was LOST, then found two years later by an Arizona hiker. Enjoy the video of our launch preparations, flight footage, and some data analysis of the flight.

We formed a new high-altitude group, Night Crew Labs! Keep up to date with new projects on our YouTube channel:

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.
