On November 18, 2011 Natty Light officially became The First Beer In Space.
Two of Natty Lights Facebook fans, Danny and Rich, came to us with an epic idea to make Natty the first beer in space. We said go for it, just let us know when ya shoot it off! Natty Light helped make their dream a reality, by offering to support there efforts on Natty's Facebook page. On Nov. 16, 2011 The spacecraft was named the Aluminum Fullcan by Natty's Facebook Fans (submitted by Kal Thomas).
Natty Light First Beer In Space: The Plan (video)
The spacecraft was launched on November 17, 2011 via weather balloon at approx 11:11am and landed back on earth at approx 1:45pm. The assent took about 2hrs rising to an altitude of 90,000ft+. The Aluminum Fullcan spacecraft landed 60 miles from the launch site and took Danny and Rich 2hrs to locate by gps (due to the rural area of the landing that offered poor reception). The event was a complete success and the following day November 18, 2011 Natty Light officially became The First Beer In Space (edge of space)...what we like to call the Nattmosphere!
The spacecraft was composed of a styrofoam cooler carrying the first beer (full beer) in space on board, a gps tracking device, an HD video camera pointed at another (empty) can on the outside of the ship (Its the can you see in frame).
Got an epic idea for Natty? Post it on the wall. If we like it, who knows maybe we'll make your next Natty adventure a reality! http://www.facebook.com/NattyLight
