I originally posted this at my Scientific American blog.
I was recently in Alaska as an invitee of GoPro cameras in support of a pretty cool science experiment by Project Aether. Briefly, I was there to assist as they launched weather balloons with GoPro cameras attached in order to collect intra-auroral images. After the weather balloons dropped, the GPS tagged cameras were then retrieved, by several means and with several people. As I receive footage and information, I will be sharing more about this here on this blog.
