You go Canadians!!!!!!
These kids from Toronto,Canada,with the help of their teacher,send a lego man 15 miles up into the stratosphere.

How cool is that?

Complete with a ufo.



Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17, used a weather balloon ordered online and a makeshift Styrofoam spacecraft to send the plastic astronaut 24 kilometers (15 miles) into the stratosphere, reports said. Their high school principal Lecourgos Papathanasakis confirmed the "amazing voyage" to AFP, but neither of the teens was immediately available for comment. An accelerated video clip posted online shows highlights of the Lego man during his 97-minute odyssey.

What a great lesson for those kids to learn. Glad there are some real teachers left in schools! As for the UFO, You can see it at 1:01 also. Curious as to what it is? Maybe it is Nibiru

That's amazing, a true slap in the face to the multi-billion dollar space programs that still feed us black and white polaroids.

S+F!

And how enterprising,they attached a parachute to it and tracked it down.


The duo then consulted a website to calculate the estimated landing spot of the weather balloon based on launch coordinates, prevailing winds and other data before launching it from a soccer pitch in nearby Newmarket, Ontario. At seven kilometers (four miles) in altitude, the balloon traveled out of cell phone range and the GPS signal also cut out, so they went home and reportedly made dumplings. Then Ho's iPad beeped. The Lego man had re-entered the atmosphere and touched down in a field 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the launch point. (c) 2012 AFP

All I can say is.........


You Canadians know to take advantage of a nice warm sun when you can get one.

The name Lego, is a combination of the two danish words "Leg godt".

Translated it means "play good" or "have fun playing".
Well these guys seems to have fun.

Next step, the moon...

Seriously? NASA feeds us a constant stream of high def full color photos. We're not in the 50's anymore

What these kids did was cool and fun, but it doesn't even scratch the surface of what NASA has accomplished. They sent a little toy into the stratosphere which is still part of the earth's atmosphere and still subject to gravity. Heck, even commercial airliners fly in the stratosphere to optimize fuel burn. Saying this act makes a fool out of NASA is like saying my son made a fool out of Einstein because he finished his 5th grade science homework.
