Camera Strapped To Rocket Captures Wondrous Footage As It Falls Back To Earth
Jun 13, 2015
A GoPro camera affixed to a Falcon 9 captured startling images worthy of an Oscar nomination. The incredible footage also has a lot in common with the film "2001: A Space Odyssey" with "The Blue Danube" as the score. The high-powered spacecraft, created by Elon Musk's company Space X, is the first commercial rocket in NASA's International Space Station. Musk, a billionaire inventor, is in the process of developing spacesuits for future exploration to Mars.
Have you ever seen "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney? Their in-orbit adventure kept viewers on the edge of their seats. While the film was a star-driven dramatic feature, not a documentary, the special effects were not entirely out of this world.
