This footage from a Go Pro Camera attached to a rocket launched into space is incredible!
The footage which was filmed using a Go Pro Hero 4 camera attached to an SL-10 rocket which reached an altitude of 396,000ft (120,700 meters) and speeds up to Mach 5.5 (3800mph or 6115km/h) at engine burnout.
Can you really appreciate Earth when you are standing there and watching the sky? Perhaps, but the best way to see and feel how important and beautiful our planet is, is definitely from above, and what better perspective than this one captured by a GoPro camera which shows a crystal clear view of our planet, its atmosphere, and SHAPE ?
On December 24, 1968, the crew of the Apollo 8 mission captured one of the most famous photographs in human history known as “The Earthrise.”
The image, photographed by Astronaut William Anders displays one of the most beautiful images of our planet, the first color image of the Earth from space.
Now, nearly fifty years after the Earth Rise image, more and more images of our planet show what a beautiful home our world is.
