Japan to Send Peace Message from Space on a Paper Airplane

Illustration for article titled Japan to Send Peace Message from Space on a Paper Airplane

This week, researchers in the Tokyo area are testing an ultra-strong, heat-resistant paper airplane for space flight in a high-speed wind tunnel. The plane is shaped like a space shuttle and can endure Mach 7 winds. Since they don't know exactly where on earth it will land upon execution, they're going to write a universal peace message that will warm the hearts of humans and aliens alike.

Pardon my sciegnorance, but if it's being launched from the International Space Station, won't it just stay up there in orbit?

I'll assume someone has already thought about that part, cause I'm guessing the ISS doesn't have wipers to assist in the "get the damned flyer off my windshield" manuever.
