360º balloon flight to the edge of space

Take a virtual reality ride on a weather balloon from the bet365 Stadium in Stoke, England up 32,704 metres (107,297ft) to the edge of space.


We attached 6x GoPros in a custom built 360º rig to a weather balloon, which then ascended for 1 hour 39 min at an average speed of 12.3mph into the earth's atmosphere. Once the balloon reached it's maximum height, the balloon burst and came safely back down to earth.

Watch the 360-degree experience and 'making of' videos below.
