CNN Camera Travels to Space and Back

PEACHTREE CITY, Georgia — A CNN camera has just been recovered after a trip to the edge of space — and back.

The camera was launched last June attached to a high altitude balloon.

It soared to 65-thousand feet, but on the way back down, violent winds ripped the camera away from a parachute — and it plummeted back to earth.

The camera landed in a tree in Georgia.

But it wasn’t spotted until late last month when that tree lost all its leaves.

Despite the drop, the camera and video were found intact.
