First Rickroll in Space

Those pranksters from [Zug][1] have now gone to the edge of [space][2], sending their own DIY satellite up to 89,000 feet above [Earth][3], and doing a little [Rickrolling][4] along the way. They claim they have now pulled the famous prank on the entire [planet][5]. Hmmm, hopefully this wasn’t the [source of the radio signals][6] that caused ESA’s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) probe to be “blinded from interference.” Surely strains of “Never Gonna Give You Up” could never do that….

The video above is a quick look at their balloon satellite launch and their results; [here’s the whole story on Zug. ][7]
