In 2014 a group of researchers at the Surrey Space Centre launched an ambitious project to send a cluster of GoPro cameras on a high altitude weather balloon, and use the footage to create a virtual reality experience called VR2Space. Thanks to the generosity of supporters, the project was successfully funded on KickStarter in July 2014 and became a reality. This is a made for VR experience that uses real world HD video footage to recreate the experience of flying to an altitude of 30 km above the surface of the earth!
- 57 minutes of immersive spherical HD video
