Seems to be a common thing these days,but the team at accessories manufacturer Slickwraps, Inc. mounted the Galaxy S6 onto a box that was attached to a high-altitude balloon and launched it into the stratosphere. While up there, Slickwraps estimates that it faced “temperatures as low as -65°F (-54°C), and a maximum altitude of 122,264 feet.”

The phone makes it far enough up into the stratosphere where it looks like a scene out of the film Gravity before the balloon bursts and sends the device hurtling back toward Earth. The device crashed along with the box it was mounted on and it did indeed survive the impact despite encountering speeds of 110 mph along the way.
