A YouTuber named Reid Williamson sent Dogecoin (DOGE) into space in honor of Elon Musk’s fiftieth birthday.
Reid Williamson used a weather balloon to send a meme token into space in honor of Elon Musk’s 50th birthday.
The exact altitude reached by the weather balloon is unknown, but it is known that they usually reach an altitude of about 40 km (25 miles) before they burst. The region called outer space begins approximately 100 km from the earth’s surface.
“To achieve all this, we had to gather a few materials and do some research,” Williamson said in a video documenting the event.
“I ordered a used GPS device from eBay, two air balloons, a parachute and of course a physical copy of Dogecoin from Amazon”
Dogecoin was launched from a field outside Austin, Texas, and landed about 30 miles away. The video was released on Monday, June 28, Elon Musk’s birthday.
Williamson expressed hope that this video will help Dogecoin reach $1.
Elon Musk previously shared an image of a Shiba Inu dog planting the Dogecoin flag on the moon’s surface.
