We are going to launch 100 paper planes from the edge of space!

Each plane will carry a message for the person who finds it.

Your messages will be carried on a Samsung SD Memory Cards attached to one of the planes. Samsung are doing this to prove how tough their memory cards are.

If you find one of our space planes after launch, let us know. We’ll announce on this site and hopefully set a new world record.

These are the Samsung SD memory cards. They are magnet proof, shock proof and waterproof. But are they space proof?

SPACE PLANES

Send a message in a paper plane, from space!
Flight Log
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!
