    Does anyone know what happed to the capsule ‘Flying (Falling?) Felix’ used? I would expect it ascended till the balloon burst. I wouldn’t think it was high enough to burn up. I haven’t read about it crashing anywhere.

    just a few seconds after felix landed, there was radio chatter about the balloon. it was already started descending, under control i believe. im sure it landed just like felix and was recovered.

    So they could let the hellium out a little by little? That would make sense.
