Where form meets function

On October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner ascended more than 24 miles above Earth’s surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon as part of the Red Bull Stratos project. Millions of people across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while free falling safely back to Earth. GoPro was part of the journey and presents a teaser of it as a 30-second 2014 Super Bowl Commercial. The commercial is only hinting at the full eight-minute documentary that GoPro produced with the footage that it recorded with the HD HERO2 camera on the epic trip. You can watch the full eight-minute story now here above and the 30-second Super Bowl commercial here below.

Seeing the entire free fall out of this new perspective is very impressive and once again demonstrates why GoPro has been such a big success these last years.
