A toy dog learned that space is the final frontier when he got detached from his “ship” on re-entry and plummeted at least 15 miles back to Earth.
Students at a primary school in England who launched “Sam” using a helium balloon on Tuesday are now searching for him.
The stuffed toy was selected to serve as an “astronaut” when children carried out experiments for a class involving astronomy and physics.
When the balloon finally popped, a GPS tracker and GoPro camera plunged back through the atmosphere. However, there was no sign of Sam following his near-space expedition.
Hes not a real dog guys, yea I know I was kinda freaking out at first when I saw some british punk kids sent a dog to the edge of our atmosphere only to lose him on the way down.
Still what the hell are these kids trying to accomplish? I think if you are in "primary" school you should know that balloons ascend into the sky until the pressure of the atmosphere pops the balloon near the edge of it depending on how durable the balloon is. What are they teaching kids over there in Britland? How to murder a stuffed animal and get away with it?
Dick move, Sam could have been someones night time buddy. Now he is just burnt shreds of fluff and cotton.
