Girl’s record-breaking message reaches her father in outer space

When your dad works in space, you have to get a little (or a lot) creative.

Children across the world have fathers who work far from home.

13-year-old Stephanie from Houston, Texas has a long-distance relationship with her dad that you might call “out of this world.” Stephanie’s father works on the International Space Station.

Stephanie wants to send her dad a message and, with the help of Hyundai, she pulls off a pretty epic expression of love. A fleet of vehicles creates a record-breaking message measuring 5.55 km². Officially recognized as “the largest tire track image” ever by Guinness World Records, this message is large enough for Stephanie’s dad to see from space!

“I’m happy he could see it and know that we’re thinking about him back home. He’s seen so many amazing things up there. But I hope that this message was the most special,” said Stephanie.

Of course, we don’t have to pull off such grand displays to express our feelings for those we love. Heartfelt notes, hugs, kind words, breakfast in bed … There are so many ways we can show love on a daily basis.
