"What happens when your GoPro goes on an epic space journey without you? A pretty cool video," writes Katy French of Visual News. In 2013, a group of Stanford University students decided to launch a weather balloon outside of Tuba City, Arizona, sending it over the Grand Canyon and into space. They attached a GoPro Hero3, Sony Camcorder, and Samsung Galaxy Note II phone to document the mission. Once launched, things were going great—until the balloon soared to 98,664 ft. and popped, sending the gear crashing down to earth."

It was found two years later with the very cool imagery, below, intact.
