Government Drone Worth $350,000 Delivered to Student’s Door


Drones have been all the rage for a while now, with the military, wildlife services and even internet companies putting them to good use. And although there is serious work put into their development and use by individuals, it is rare for anyone to get a government drone delivered to their doorstep. This happened to one Reddit user after UPS messed around with their delivery packages. The result was part of a drone meant for the marine sanctuary (Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary) ending up at the door of a private citizen. Upon receiving the package however, the reddit user (Seventy_Seven) notified the NOAA (US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) who were happy to rectify their mistake. The drone had a range of 8 miles and could last 2 hours.
