Fans send X-wing into space hoping to score Star Wars tickets
How badly do you want to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December? Two fans in the UK want to go to the film’s premiere so much that they sent a model X-wing into space in an elaborate quest to get their hands on some tickets.
The video above was created by Project Helium Tears, a two-person group from Essex that uses weather balloons to take photos of Earth from the edge of space. For the group’s latest stunt, they attached a model X-wing to one of their balloons and filmed the results. According to the BBC, the effort cost the duo around £1,200.
