Video: Blast-off: The moment cricket ball is launched to edge of space

The white ball reached a peak altitude of 110,000ft - around three times the height at which a commercial plane cruises. Cricket chiefs have broken all boundaries - by blasting a ball from Edgbaston into space. The England and Wales Cricket Board worked with a team of aeronautical engineers to launch an official match ball into the Earth’s atmosphere. Credit: Official England Cricket
