A tech company launched a camera attached to a weather balloon into the sky to capture views of Chicago we've never seen before. Here's more from WGN:
"Chicago-based tech company Panoskin attached a bundle of GoPro cameras to a weather balloon before launching it into the stratosphere early this week. From its starting point near the Adler Planetarium, the balloon traveled 16 miles up — the height of nearly 50 Willis Towers stacked on top of each other — while cameras captured a 360-degree view of the world around it along the way."
Panoskin had to talk with air traffic control and fill out lots of paperwork before getting this project done. They also had to prepare for several different scenarios for when the balloon popped and fell back to the earth. Watch the video below!
