Very cool! I would think that the glass had to be well annealed to take the thermal shock, and I wonder how they secured the one pictured to that metal plate because it took a pretty good blow on landing, enough to buckle the plate. A 28 oz. marble is pretty hefty, too - 3” range?

Yep neat. It would parachute down with a good  thud . Wonder if they lost any of these objects it appears they sent a bunch of stuff up.
