Hyundai Helps Send An Astronaut A Message In Space From The Ground [VIDEO]
What does Earth look like from space? It looks like a big, blue ball, but to one dad who also happens to be an astronaut, Earth was also his greeting card, thanks to his daughter and Hyundai.
When 13-year-old Stephanie's dad went to the International Space Station for a months-long mission, she decided she wanted to make sure he knew that she was thinking of him. Hyundai decided to help out and they used 11 Genesis cars to create a record-breaking image in the Nevada desert that could be seen from space.
The Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada was the spot chosen for the message that was more than one and a half times the size of Central Park in New York City. Stephanie's dad was able to capture the image with his camera from the ISS, and then let her know that he had seen it.
The message wasn't just a cool way to let her dad know she loves him, Stephanie's message has also been officially recognized as “the largest tire track image” ever by Guinness World Records.
