Here’s a video summary of the adventure that Rafa’s racket enjoyed thanks to Mision Nadal.

Too. Damn. Cool.
That was cool, seeing it hover against that blue ring of atmosphere, or stratosphere, whichever layer that is….
looks well beyond the exosphere to me ( that’s the outermost layer of our tiny planet’s atmosphere at an altitude of about 50 miles ) I’m down here on the surface dreaming about my first interstellar voyage and Rafa’s racquet is already up there doing
Oopsie , my bad . I didn’t see the footage at first , looking at the picture I thought it was hanging by a satellite . Turns out they used a hydrogen balloon , this thing went about 20 miles before the bubble exploded . That was somewhere between the tropopause and the stratopause . Sorry for the misinformation :)
