Strapping a GoPro Camera to things seems to always be a good idea. Sharks, eagles, that time a seagull stole one, all turned out incredible footage. But now, it's time for rocket GoPro.
UP Aerospace, with help from NASA, put a GoPro on a test rocket and let it rip. The resulting video shows the rocket dramatically shooting up into space, spinning, spinning, spinning as it rises, and then getting a triumphant view from above. The Independent reports that the rocket got to an altitude of 75 miles, making this a successful rocket test.
Just one more item for GoPro to check off its bucket list.
