Ultradent Launches a VALO Curing Light into Space!!! And You Could Get a VALO for Only $0.99


There are some amazing things about Ultradent’s Valo curing light.  One of the most incredible is how durable it is.

The device is made out of aerospace grade aluminum which is the same aluminum used to make satellites, rockets, and missiles.  With that in mind, the smart and adventurous people at Ultradent had a great idea for the device’s 10 year anniversary.  That’s right, the first Valors hit the market in 2009.  To celebrate, they decided to actually launch a Valo into space!  Interested in seeing just how they did it? They have posted a video to FaceBook that shows the launch and even a brief “chase” by a drone.  

It’s not the easiest thing to do, getting something into space, but if something was easy, then the smart people at Ultradent wouldn’t do it!  I know these folks pretty well and I can say that those people love a good challenge.

So, they actually created a box carrying GoPro cameras, a Valo, and a bobble head of founder Dr Dan Fischer and attached the contraption to a weather balloon.  From the front lawn of Ultradent World Headquarters in South Jordan, Utah, the package was launched.  As you can see from the photo above, the project worked pretty well!  I do not know the final altitude that was achieved, but in the photo accompanying this post, you can see the curvature of the Earth.

Now if launching a curing light into space isn’t enough… the company has also announced a contest.  If you can guess where the Valo landed, you will be the proud owner of a Valo curing light for only 99¢!!!  That’s right, you can get the best curing light currently on the market for less than a buck.  Here is the link for the contest.
