GoPro Shot The Most Insane Footage Of The Grand Canyon From Space


Ever since Felix Baumgartner teamed up with Red Bull to take a leap of faith from the "edge of space," we've seen more and more stunts attempted from this mysterious location.

As a matter of fact, back in April, we introduced you to the company that vows to take people to the edge of space for just $75,000 per person. Apparently, it's become such a hot spot, someone needed to create a kind of overpriced Uber service to take you there.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube by Bryan Chan, we're taken through the wild process a group of friends went through when they launched a weather balloon equipped with a GoPro into space from near Tuba City, Arizona.

Once the device reached peak heights, it produced satellite-like views of the Grand Canyon.

The video's description reads,

Who knew the GoPro could double as a time capsule?!

The overall flight time was recorded at one hour and 38 minutes, and the GoPro reportedly hit a maximum altitude of 98,664 feet.
