A model of a 2015 Ford Mustang was sent into space via a high-altitude weather balloon in celebration of the iconic pony car's 50th anniversary. The journey was captured by action cameras.
Mustang is going where it hasn’t before with the new Mach-E Rally. Nearly a decade ago, the iconic pony car tackled a new frontier of another type – outer space.
The iconic pony car took the world by storm just as the space race of the 1960s was heating up. To mark its 50th anniversary in 2014, Michael Sego, Mustang Mach-E group marketing manager and then-San Francisco-area Ford zone sales manager, teamed up with a local Ford Dealer to send the car on its voyage.
