Recently the private space firm SpaceX conducted a test of its new Falcon 9 rocket, sending it into orbit high above the Earth. By most accounts it was a successful flight, potentially opening the door for a new era of commercial space flight. During that test a GoPro camera was attached to one of the rockets farings, and it managed to capture some amazing footage as it fell back to Earth. The video below is a sample of that footage, which is oddly tranquil, especially when set to the music of the Blue Danube by Johann Strauss.
