Near Space Photography has been proud to support HBO India’s competition to launch a selfie photo into the stratosphere. The competition was in support of their premier of Gravity in India.
The payload was hard to launch and recover as the conditions were very windy. During December, the sun is low on the horizon so the lighting conditions were not perfect. The first launch ended in failure as the balloon got caught during inflation and tore. Finally the flight was undertaken and footage was collected from a Go Pro Hero 3+ Silver and Go Pro Hero 3+ Black using a Brunton battery pack.
