On May 9, the Skyward Sphere program launched a replica of the “iconic EVE capsule” into the stratosphere containing the names of EVE Online players via a weather balloon. The rig also contained three cameras which filmed the process, it’s flight, and being fished from a lake after reentry. A short video of this is posted below, with more footage expected soon.
