Insta360 X2 Action Cameras Captured This Amazing 360-Degree View of Earth from Space

Insta360 X2 Action Camera Earth from Space
At the beginning of this year, two Insta360 X2 action cameras were launched into space aboard a solar-powered satellite and both are now orbiting the planet, capturing incredible 360° views of the stars, the Milky Way, and Earth. This is officially the first time ever a 360° action camera has reached outer space.



To make this achievement possible, Insta360 collaborated with Media Storm and SAR satellite company Spacety. It took approximately 12 months to modify the action cameras, including six months of R&D. One important modification was making the casing as well as internals capable of withstanding extreme heat and cold. Since the satellite circles the globe every 90 minutes, temperatures range between -94°F and 122°F (-70°C and 50°C).

Insta360 is no stranger to attaching its action cameras in unconventional ways. In 2022, falconry expert Paul Kilma mounted Insta360 RS to an eagle for a unique birds-eye view. This year, Karman Space attached Insta360 X3 to their Eclipse weather balloon and sent it 86,000ft (26km) into the stratosphere. This time, it was X2’s turn to venture further into space,” said the company.
