Thought this would be fitting since Felxix Baumgartner and the Red Bull team finally launched Statos to 128,000 ft., maybe he could enjoyed this on the way up. Nice work boys!
On May 27th, 2011 Natty Light officially became The First Beer In Space. The spacecraft was launched via weather balloon. The ascent took about 2 hrs rising to an altitude of 90,000 ft+. The Aluminum Fullcan spacecraft landed 60 miles from the launch site and took Danny and Rich 2 hrs to locate by gps (due to the rural area of the landing that offered poor reception). The event was a complete success and Natty Light officially became The First Beer In Space (edge of space)…what we like to call the Nattmosphere!
The spacecraft was composed of a styrofoam cooler carrying the first beer (full beer) in space on board, a gps tracking device, an HD video camera pointed at another (empty) can on the outside of the ship (It’s the can you see in frame).
Special Thanks from Natty Nation goes out to Danny B. and Rich T. you dudes are awesome!!
