    On the 9 April 2015 we sent a Donut to the edge of space (32km up) with a weather balloon, from Askim Norway.
    We spent many months planning this, and we are happy with the outcome of this project.

    We had permission do this, do not try to do this without a permit.

    We are not from Norway, we are from Sweden :)

    So if they were from another Scandinavian country, they would have sent a Danish, right? :cornut:

    Would have been more impressive if they had sent a cup of coffee up with it. I am sure it got lonely.

    Pilot:
    Ummmm... We just hit a UFO...

    Tower:

    Please Repeat...

    Pilots:
    There's a donut stuck on the outside of the windscreen....

    Tower:
    Whaaaat?
