On February 14, 2013, Sebastian, a 35-year-old French man, will be the first man to propose to his girlfriend in Space, at an altitude of 30 kilometers. The space flight will be entirely filmed, from the launch to the arrival of the message of love in the stratosphere.
For 4990 euros, the man called on the services of the French company ApoteoSurprise, a romance expert specialized in planning spectacular marriage proposals in Paris. On Valentine's Day, the picture of the couple and the message « Vanessa, will you marry me? » will be attached to a giant helium-filled balloon and released in the sky by professionals operating in the space exploration area. The set will be supplied with a video recording equipment which will film the message and the surrounding scenery during the whole flight, from the launch to the arrival in Space.
After two or three hours, the message of love will arrive at an altitude of 30 kilometers, and the last footage will be shot with the wonderful blue planet in the background.
The balloon will blow up, a parachute will open, and the video equipment will fall back to Earth. The footage will be recovered and a montage will be edited, so the man can show the astounding film to his girlfriend. The lady will then become the first woman being proposed in Space.
