Watch Your Eve Online Character Float To Space And Back

EVE Online developer CCP bundled their players' names into a pod earlier this week and shot it into the stratosphere , as near to space as they could get it.

The weather balloon to which the pod was attached also had a camera on board. Earlier, we had amazing stills of the view far above Iceland, and now CCP has assembled a highlight reel of the video as well. It's a stunning view from 100,000 feet above the Earth (if a bit dizzying in the middle), but unless you live in Iceland, you probably can't see your house from there.

Sadly, all great journeys must come to an end, and eventually balloon, capsule, and camera all returned to Earth, plopping gently into the water.

I've done it all wrong. I should have been a #diablo3 server manager, not a #eveonline space tyrant - this is amazing.
