Samsung’s ‘SpaceSelfie’ Satellite Crash Landed in Someone’s Yard

Samsung’s ‘SpaceSelfie’ satellite, which was supposed to stay aloft until October 31st, came crashing to Earth this weekend. The device, which was held aloft at 65,000 feet by a massive high-altitude balloon, had to make a “planned” landing on Saturday, only a day after Samsung announced the launch of the campaign.

The SpaceSelfie campaign (read: marketing stunt) kicked off last week with “the world’s first selfie sent to space,” which was shot and uploaded by model and philanthropist Cara Delevingne. Her selfie was broadcast onto a phone attached to the satellite, re-captured using an onboard camera, and beamed back to Earth.
