12 Miles Above the Earth

As Sam flies high into the atmosphere, his camera enables some very nice views of the curvature of the earth's surface.

LONDON — Sam the Dog has gone where no stuffed animal has gone before — into the stratosphere and the English unknown. Sam the cuddly toy dog flies high in the sky after taking off from Morecambe, England Tuesday April 5, 2016 attached to a special camera and a helium balloon. Sending the toy dog into the sky was part of a science project by Morecambe Bay Community Primary School which joined forces with a local hotel. The toy dog reached an altitude of 12 miles above the earth's surface. (Morecambe Bay Community Primary School and English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues via AP)

And this is the moment he was lost :-(
