On December 1st 2012, Geek Squad entered the space race by successfully sending a Geek Squad Badge to near-space. After a one-month design and build period, a team of Agents launched Icarus I, which achieved an altitude of nearly 90,000 feet and traveled 165 miles. The flight lasted approximately two hours and forty minutes, after which the capsule returned safely to Earth and was recovered by the ground crew.
