PongSat Mission Video

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

The mission video is up on youtube!

The video is from all six vehicles. We used seven on board HD cameras and six ground HD camera. We had a high speed camera looking up at the balloon for an amazing burst slow-mo shot.

We shipped the PongSats back without the mission DVD. It takes two weeks to get the DVD’s made and the end of the school year is getting very close. I finished the video yesterday and today it goes to the DVD production company. We’ll send them to the PongSat participants as soon as there back. Until then watch it on line. It came out really great.
