This hand-painted Snoopy and Woodstock figurine flew to the stratosphere on Jan. 30, 2024, onboard an Earth to Sky Calculus cosmic ray research balloon. It combines classic Peanuts characters with folk art designs by award-winning artist Jim Shore, and comes with a greeting card showing the figurine in flight.
During the balloon flight, Snoopy soared to an altitude of 112,505 feet, experiencing temperatures as low as -58 C with air pressures less than 0.3% of sea level. After two hours in the stratosphere, the balloon popped (as planned) and the payload parachuted back to Earth, landing in Eureka Valley on the verge of Death Valley National Park. Snoopy had a wild ride, and the students got great data for their atmospheric radiation monitoring program.


The figurine measures 3.625" L x 2.5" W x 4.5" H
