Geostationary Banana Over Texas.

The Geostationary Banana Over Texas project calls itself “an art intervention” and is scheduled for launch in August of 2008. The 300 meter banana will be constructed of bamboo and paper and filled with helium. It will float at 30 to 50 km above the state of Texas, which will put it on the line between Earth's atmosphere and space. From the ground, the banana will be visible and recognizable day and night all over Texas. Will this project ever get off the ground, or will there be slip-ups? Link
