Brief Explanation

The “Space Balloon Project” (SBP) is the world’s first LIVE communication challenge set in space. It’s also the world’s highest media development linked with many SNS sites and USTREAM. We live-streamed the 90 minutes flight of the GALAXY S II headed to space on a meteorological balloon. During the flight, we showed more than 3000 messages and icons of hope and dreams to encourage Japan on the beautiful display of GALAXY S II, live. SBP gathered an USTREAM ASIA record 380,000 unique viewers, 98000 tweets, and in the same month GALAXY S II’s share in Japan accomplished number one.
