Samsung’s SpaceSelfie Satellite Crashed Onto American Backyard

Samsung recently sent a Galaxy S10 5G into space launching an interesting worldwide campaign called SpaceSelfie. A few days after sending the first selfie into space, the satellite of SpaceSelfie crashed back to Earth and was found in the backyard of an American family.

On October 26, Nancy and Dan Mumby-Welke stepped into the garden of their home in the US, witnessing a view that very few people in the world would encounter. There was an upside-down spacecraft in the backyard of their house. Dan Mumby-Welke survived, immediately took a video of the satellite and shared with Facebook followers.

The satellite was designed to display the selfies on Galaxy S10 5G when it went into space and to carry the entire system. In fact, it was an unexpected development that the satellite, which had successfully risen to 65,000 feet in the first phase, fell down.

“Earlier today, Samsung Europe’s SpaceSelfie balloon came back down to earth. During this planned descent of the balloon to land in the U.S., weather conditions resulted in an early soft landing in a selected rural area. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Speaking on the subject, a Samsung spokesperson announced that the campaign ended in an unexpected way. What do you think?
