"Cosmic Kite" .. A tribute to Maradona in space

“Cosmic Kite” .. A tribute to Maradona in space

“We love you and we will always remember you, Diego, the new generation and all generations to come,” Enrique Trincado, a fan of the late star, told AFP after recording his message at the Air Base de Moron, 40 kilometers west of Buenos Aires.

The idea of ​​a “cosmic kite” was born from the story of Uruguayan journalist Morales after Maradona’s second goal against England (2-1) in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Mexico 1986.

It is known that Argentina won the World Cup that year, which made Maradona gain more international fame.

“Where are you from?” shouted the journalist into the radio microphone at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico as the Argentina captain, who died of a stroke in 2020, dribbled half the English side before scoring a left-footed goal widely considered the goal of the century.

At the initiative of a private company, fans’ videos and audios will be compressed onto a hard disk and then sent into orbit on a satellite, along with a pair of the former star’s soccer boots.

The messages will continue to be collected for months, and the date and location of the satellite launch will be determined later.

Maximiliano Fernando Gallo, co-founder of the Cosmic Kite project, said messages from all over the world would be collected for the project.

It is noteworthy that Argentina fans have a plane to honor Maradona with pictures and souvenirs in a traveling exhibition, and it will try to land in Qatar during the 2022 World Cup.
