Engagement Ring in Space

Calgary man launches engagement ring into stratosphere to awe fiancée. 'I wanted her to know it's completely unique and special, like she is to me,' Shawn Wright tells CBC.

For Shawn Wright, proposing to his fiancée on a beach, under a full moon, on a surprise trip to Spain, just wasn't enough of a fairy tale romance. The ring he gave Maylynn Stephenson a year ago in Spain was a stand-in ring, a substitute for her to wear while he saved up enough for the real one.

But once he secured the real ring, he decided he couldn't simply hand it to her. The new ring also had to have its own special flare. "I thought it would be really unique to be able to, kind of, enchant it by putting it up 100,000 feet," Wright told CBC News.

Shawn Wright kept the ring's travels close to his chest. The only person he told was his father, who helped him launch the high-altitude weather balloon.
