Valentine's Day is one month away. Nothing says "I Love You" like an Infinity Pendant from the edge of space. On Jan. 8, 2020, the students launched a cosmic ray balloon to monitor atmospheric radiation. This authentic Swarovski Crystal pendant hitched a ride, 113,209 feet high. After the balloon exploded (as planned), the payload parachuted back to Earth, landing in Saline Valley on the verge of Death Valley National Park. The pendant had a wild ride, and the students got great data for their atmospheric radiation monitoring program.
The students are selling these pendants to support their cosmic ray ballooning program. The glittering heart-shaped crystal is wrapped in a silver-embossed infinity clasp, symbolizing unending love. Each one comes with a romantic card showing the pendant in flight and telling the story of its journey to the edge of space and back again.
