The JP Aerospace team posts a new video from the Away 38 flight, here are some images also taken from Away 38.

Away 38 reached 99,340 feet. The vehicle carried two model rockets. In spite of heaters and insulation the motor  were too cold and failed to ignite.  There was an HD video camera in line with the rocket launch boxes. The view is look upward at a 56 degree angle. The camera didn’t get the chance to capture the rockets in flight, however,  they did record some amazing footage of the balloon burst.

Away 38 carried seven cameras. Three of them were high definition video. The great thing about HD video cameras is that you can grab reasonable quality still images. You can see things in the frames that you miss watching the video. This camera was looking horizontal across the vehicle. It also was getting dazzled out by the brightness of the Earth.

These are scenes from the Away 38 flight on June 27, 2009. There were six ground video camera, four flight video camera and three flight still camera (plus a documentary film crew, but we didn’t get to see there video yet). The video is a just under nine minutes of samples of the 20 hours of film we shot.
