Earth 360 - A documentary following Almost Rocket Science's own Geoff Bergen, as he designs, builds, tests, launches and (hopefully) recovers a capsule that will create the first 360° images of the earth from near-space.
This is the first time anyone has made 360° pictures of the earth from near-space and we hope to inspire people to follow in our foot steps. The best way we know how to do that is to create a video showing how we accomplished it and how they can do it too!
Because this video is directed towards inspiration, we are going to give it the best chance of reaching as many people as possible, How? By posting the film for free on YouTube, Vimeo, and the Earth 360 website. But we don't want to make just another internet video. We want you to feel like your there with us, and with the capsule at 100,000ft.
One of the major reasons we are creating the documentary, is to inspire people to do this for themselves and hopefully get awesome panoramic photos of there own! But now that you have these images, where are you going to post them?
In addition to everything else we are doing, we hope to build a website that will be the go to place for you to show off YOUR amazing panoramic photographs.
It will also contain a forum, where people can post updates to there latest builds, ask advice or discuss the latest news regarding weather balloon photography.
