Local radio broadcast from space

DJs in space

A radio station based in Milton Keynes has become the first to broadcast a breakfast show from space. Heart Four Counties sent a balloon up almost 22 miles with figures of the DJs on board.

The flight took almost three hours in total, with nearly an hour spent in space, before the balloon burst. The technical equipment landed safely in a field in Lancashire where it was retrieved by the ground crew.
