NASA PAYLOAD FALLS IN WHITEWATER VALLEY; REWARD OFFERED

(Preble County, OH)--If you can find a NASA payload that fell from the sky recently, there’s a thousand dollars in it for you.  Late last week, the NASA ARMAS payload fell about 60,000 feet from a high-altitude balloon and is thought to have landed somewhere north of Lewisburg near Georgetown-Verona Road.  It looks like a shoebox and is wrapped in silver tape.  NASA was conducting an experiment on natural radiation at aircraft altitude.  The payload is not dangerous.  There’s a one-thousand-dollar reward for its return.
