I tend to doubt that a typical weather balloon will raise to 100,000 feet. Of course, that tends to have me doubt that the image of the curve of the
earth and the blackness of space is a genuine shot.
I further doubt that the thing can raise to that height and fall back within 70 yards of its point of origin. What happen to the jet streams? Was
there totally no upper air movement that day?
How long would it take to raise by balloon to 100,000 feet and then flutter back like a falling leaf?
Finally, since the airborne picture--what not vid?--seems to show the balloon harness fastened to the device and we are told that the contraption fell
when the balloon burst, evidently there was no release mechanism was used to seperate the one from the other. We can easily understand that the wind
resistance of the falling deflated balloon and the flatness of the Ipad would have created a great deal of wind resistance to counter the typical
effects of gravity upon a falling smooth and compact body. Envision a falling leaf-like effect that would carry the outfit virtually straight down.
--It wouldn't happen.
In essence, I doubt that this advertising advent happened as we were told, after all, how many ads do you see and hear are actually factual and not
contrieved in part or in whole?
(My apologies to Apple fans the world over.)
