European SpaceSelfie Satellite Crashes in USA, near Nancy and Dan’s horses. A Samsung balloon made up as a satellite, more accurately, came down a little earlier than planned and Samsung apologized for any inconvenience caused by the early soft landing in Gratiot County, Michigan.
Nancy Welke heard the crash around 8:45 a.m., just before she and her husband, Dan, were going to let their horses out, the Gratiot County Herald reported. “Unbelievable. Look what just fell out of the sky and 911 is baffled and it’s caught up in our tree,” Welke said in a post on Facebook.
The satellite fell near Barry Road between Polk and St. Charles. Gratiot Central Dispatch warned drivers to stay clear of the area. No injuries occurred Saturday when the “Samsung Europe’s SpaceSelfie balloon” landed. “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,” according to the Samsung statement.
According to Gratiot Central Dispatch officials, the fire department had the roadway closed due to a large object caught in live power lines. The road reopened 30 minutes later. The story did not say if part of the balloon was touching the power lines. Sounds like a fun idea. You upload your face with a custom made app and you get a space backdrop created by the balloon lofted satellite. #samsungselfie #satellitecrash #onlyaballoon #oddnews #strangenews
