There are all kinds of cool and unique marriage proposals, but this one is truly out of this world - literally!

A wooden spatula, a go-pro,  and a weather balloon don't seem like the most romantic way to pop the question, but when you add in the engagement ring and sent it to outer space, it's nearly impossible for a girl to say no.

That's just what Shawn Wright did.

According to, after attaching the ring to the spatula and mounting an accompanying go-pro camera, Wright launched the proposal in a weather balloon high into the sky,  and captured the whole thing on video. At the end of the video he asks his girlfriend to marry him.

Apparently he was able to recover the ring after it fell back to earth using a GPS tracking device.

We assume the girl said 'yes'. How could a girl possibly say no to this out of this world proposal?
