Man sends his wife's engagement ring into space
#1
When Shawn Wright of Calgary, Alta. bought an engagement ring for his wife, he wanted to do something special with it -- so he set in motion a plan that is out of this world.

Wright originally proposed to his wife in Barcelona, Spain, using a "stand-in" ring.

After a year of saving, he was finally able to purchase the real ring. Before giving it to her he wanted to do something special with it.

"I thought it would be really cool to, kind of, enchant it," he tells The Weather Network.

That's when Wright decided he would send the ring into space.

It took a lot of research and some planning, but he was able to pull the plan off without a hitch.

He launched the device on clear day in October in Calgary. It landed some 300 km away in Taber after reaching an altitude of 110,000 feet.
