Nova’s TV show for ‘greatest thing we have ever done’

Staff Writer

A couple of months ago, Nova 106.9's breakfast show 'Ash, Kip and Luttsy' completed their stunt of sending their bobbleheads into space.

From the launch site in Coonabarabran in NSW, the three bobbleheads were launched towards space carried by high altitude weather balloons.

Scott Tonges, the Digital Content Editor for Nova 106.9, produced a TV special to air on Nine Queensland featuring Ash, Kip, Luttsy, PD Jay Walkerden and a very funny narration by Ben Ryan.

Watch all 3 parts of the show that aired on Saturday below :-

  • It took 4 hours to go up into the edge of space and come back
  • It's maximum height was 31kms – 3 times as high as a plane
  • Temp at that altitude was -48 degrees
  • It's travelled over 180 kms total distance
  • Wind speed in the jet stream was over 140kms
  • It took 4 hours to retrieve jobber naught 1 (the vessel)
