PROJECT SPACE PLANES!


Launching out of Minden, Germany; Project Space Planes tethered 200 paper planes to a helium balloon and released the contraption up to "the edge of space".  The balloon burst releasing the planes each fitted with a message for its finder to wander back down to earth.  Their website claims to even have some unconfirmed discoveries of the paper planes in South Africa and America!
