Ford Mustang model car arrives in space

The Ford Mustang has reached its 50th anniversary so the Blue Oval company decided the best way to celebrate this event is to send a Revell Mustang model car into space.

They did this by using a high-altitude weather balloon that allowed the model car reach an altitude of almost 33,528 meters (110,000 feet).

74 minutes later after take-off, the model car returned on earth and landed on a field from where it was retrieved after using a GPS location transmitter to find out the exact position of the Mustang.
