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

By

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,

In June 2013, a group of friends launched a weather balloon a few miles from Tuba City, Arizona. The amazing footage was found two years later by an Arizona hiker. Enjoy the video of our launch preparations, video footage and some data analysis of the flight.

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.
