ALIEN-1 Photographs

Alienhab photo sets on Flickr

ALIEN-1 was equipped with a Canon Powershot A560, which was programmed to capture a photo every 5 seconds, resulting in some 3,000 images. We’ve sorted through them and uploaded some of our favourites; they really amazed us and we hope you like them too!

The Powershot A560 has been used on several launches previously and is a tried and tested model for high-altitude imaging. As you can see it really isn’t anything special, which goes to show how good these cheap compacts really are! Technical details can be found on Canon’s website here. We plan to make large prints and possibly canvases soon.
