I am surprised that the satellite survived the re-entry through the atmosphere. I thought that it would have either burned up or broke apart. :confused:

Not sure if joking... :)

Just so we're clear, this isn't a satellite. It's a payload from a stratospheric balloon used as part of a marketing scheme.
