We made this video almost five years ago to celebrate the 50th anniversary of John Glenn's orbit around the earth. We're uploading it now as a tribute to one of our heroes. How we made this:

We edited together a video and then played it on a loop on an iPhone attached to a weather balloon. We had two gopros filming the phone as the video played. We chose the coolest shots from the balloon's journey to piece the video back together.

“I’m not interested in my legacy. I made up a word: ‘live-acy.’ I’m more interested in living.” John Glenn 1921-2016
