Our friends over at Lume Cube decided to take things stratospheric!
Dubbed "Project Aura", the crew's goal was to send an air balloon up 12 miles into the Earth's Stratosphere all while filming the entire journey. Launched before dawn, they successfully hit the goal with the balloon hoisting their contraption that housed GoPro's, Lume Cubes, a GPS tracker and a couple GO PUCK's to power the journey.
Check out the footage here:
