Traveling onboard a giant helium balloon, this Houston Astros baseball traveled 34.7 km (113,845 feet) above Earth’s surface–a real home run! After the balloon exploded, as planned, the ball parachuted back to Earth, landing in the desert near Deep Springs, California, almost 30 miles from its launch site in the Sierra Nevada mountains overlooking Bishop, California.
Each baseball comes with a greeting card showing the ball in flight and telling the story of its journey to the stratosphere. Plus, you’ll receive a UV-resistant cubical display case with decorating stickers depicting the ball at the edge of space.
