While trying to launch a 360 degree video camera system to 100,000 feet on board an experimental high-powered rocket from the Black Rock Desert in Nevada we experienced a failure which ripped the fins from the rocket while it was going more than 2,000 miles per hour. The shock ripped the camera from the nosecone and it fell from 36,000 feet with no parachute. Amazingly one memory card (out of 5) survived.

The actual impact wasn't caught on video since power was disrupted to the camera system on impact so only the videos already written to the card (we had each camera starting a new video every 5 minutes) were readable.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
