Samsung ‘satellite’ falls out of sky in Michigan
DETROIT – A Samsung pseudo satellite fell from the sky Saturday morning in a rural Michigan neighborhood, according to the Morning Sun.
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.
According to Gratiot Central Dispatch officials, the fire department closed the roadway where the “satellite” fell because of a large object caught in live power lines.
“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.
In an article from Samsung Newsroom U.K., the Samsung SpaceSelfie project is designed for Samsung consumers to get their pictures with a backdrop of space using a balloon.
“With over 200 hours at 65,000 feet above the earth, the S10 5G will showcase the strength of Samsung’s innovations ...,” according to the article.
According to an email statement from Samsung, the landing was planned, and no injuries occurred Saturday when the balloon landed.
