The capsule rose approximately 20 miles through the stratosphere over Granbury and was recovered approximately 3 hours later in a field in Crowley. The project was a spectacular success, and produced hundreds of striking photos.
The space-borne souvenirs included:
3 library cards – Fort Worth Southwest Regional Public Library; Fort Worth Shamblee Public Library; and the Mansfield Public Library
2 Action Figures: One of William Shatner and one of Christopher Lloyd
1 miniature model of a spaceship! (None other than the Starship Enterprise!!)
