We'll be keeping you up to date with project announcements both here and on @spaceplanes!
Well this is it, we’re at the end of our Project Space Planes and we hope that you’ve enjoyed the highs and the lows alongside us!
The launch was a huge success despite the weather playing up so much that it delayed us a number of months. Those paper planes with their precious cargo of Samsung SD memory cards flew down to earth, seemingly all over the world!
We tested one of the cards that got stuck in the net and came back to earth with the payload and it works perfectly. There was no damage from its trip to space and the data on it hadn’t been altered in any way (as you can see from the round-up film!).
We are still waiting for the reports of people finding planes to be confirmed but it is safe to say that the cards will still work after their pioneering space mission.
Thank you all for your support over the course of this project, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Hi space fans!
So we did our launch 3 weeks ago now and the reports of people finding planes are still coming in. We’re waiting for confirmations on these reports so keep checking back.
We’re going to still be here for another 2 weeks so if you or someone you know has found a pink and purple plane, let us know! Send us a photo and let us know the unique number written on the card and plane so we can identify it. You can contact us here: http://projectspaceplanes.com/ask
Here are the new locations where we’ve been told people have found planes:
Zehlendorf, Berlin, Germany
We are still verifying all of these reports and will be able to let you know when we can confirm them!
Also, just to answer a question that a few people have asked us, the launch took place on Monday 17th January 2011 from a field in Wolfsburg, Germany.
Keep checking back here for more updates!
Well folks, we’ve got a bit of bad news for you space fans out there. Our experts don’t think that we will be launching this side of Christmas due to the weather. Our weather trackers are showing more snow, high winds and general horrible conditions for the next couple of weeks, none of which will go down well with our balloon and paper planes.
So, it looks like we’ll be putting our little cards up into space in 2011. Stay tuned though, we’ll be updating the blog regularly with other space-related wonderfulness.
