First space proposal to take place on Feb. 14.


On Feb. 14, a 35-year-old French man will be the first person to propose to his girlfriend in space at an altitude of 30 kilometers. The space flight will be filmed from the launch to the arrival of the message of love in the stratosphere.


The man called on the services of the French company ApoteoSurprise, a romance expert specializing 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 will be released in the sky by professionals operating in the space exploration area. The set will be supplied with 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 Earth 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 film to his girlfriend.


This scenario, say I love you in space, is a new package from the catalog of 30 romantic experiences available.
