This little camera certainly earned the “hero” part of its name.
In a video posted to YouTube last week, a GoPro Hero3 camera captures close-up video of an incredible sight: a rocket engine’s fiery blast.
The footage of hellfire and smoke is accompanied by a soft piano track, creating a mesmerizing juxtaposition.
Eventually, the camera is blasted off of its mounting, but it continues to record otherworldly video as it falls.
The people responsible for the video, at the “non-profit suborbital space endeavour” Copenhagen Suborbitals, included a shot of the GoPro itself, battered and burned, at the end of the clip.
