Samsung to drop SD cards from space

Samsung to drop SD cards from space
The Viral Facory, an advertising agency, will drop 100 Samsung SD cards on paper airplanes from the edge of space to showcase their durability.

The SD drop, called Project Space Planes, will drop the paper airplanes from a weather balloon 21 miles above the Earth (the paper is waterproof). We don't know the drop location, but they'll likely travel pretty far.

Each memory card will contain pictures, videos, or music that, if found, can be uploaded to the Project Space Planes website. The recipients of the falling memory cards will be able to keep the SD card, and contact the person who made the original message.

Samsung is promoting their new line of magnet-proof, waterproof, X-ray proof, and shock proof SD cards. These 'Plus' SD cards also double your transfer speed. Check out the video below, and visit Project Space Planes to upload your own message.

Judging from the picture of where they will drop the paper airplane, us resides in NAM will never get those paper air plane since the wind/current travels from west to east....hence it will be mostly in EUR, Russia...or maybe, just maybe in Japan/Korea.

Samsung does realize that most of the planet is covered with water right?

Yea, even though the paper airplanes and sd cards may be waterproof, nobody will find the damn things. That's if they make it through the atmosphere withouth burning up first.

can u explain to me how a paper airplane is going to burn up? It will never ever ever ever come close enough to the speed required for that. its a frikkin paper airplane. now what would be funny is if one of these paper airplanes hit a real airplane on the way down.. yea, that would be a huge lawsuit.

Can you explain to me what kind of damage a PAPER airplane would cause if it hits a REAL airplane? Airplanes that withstand bird strikes, hail, hurricane force winds, and anything else that might come their way?
