Well, it's not technically
space, but it's as close as you can get without the help of some Russian rocketeers and their flying machines. As a token of gratitude, the Icelandic MMO moguls at CCP will be placing the names and pictures of every currently subscribed player character in EVE Online
(as of 23:59 GMT tonight) into a capsule, which will then be sent into near-space via high-altitude balloon.
High-altitude balloons cannot actually leave the Earth's atmosphere and enter legit outer-space, but they are
capable of traveling hundreds of thousands of feet into the air; high enough to see the curvature of the Earth against the blackness of space. The event will take place during CCP's own Fanfest 2012 in beautiful Reykjavik, Iceland.
