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!


How? Explain.

Polaroids were never used in space photography. It's educational evidence like this that doesn't hide you don't know crap about what you are trying to say.

Tell us, how high did that ballon go?

Cool video.


I guess its the moon. Not at all a lens flare.
You see it more than once


And that is one hell of a satellite if it is.

Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17, launched a balloon 80,000 feet above the Earth with a Lego passenger and four cameras to document the trip.

Let's put things in perspective. Here's a scale diagram of how high their balloon got versus the International Space Station.

This is an awesome video to witness a Lego man go up into the stratosphere
.I would've probably enjoyed education in school if we had this tech! Props!

I love that!
Sending a peep up.
It seems it was from 2007.I wonder if the experiment would have been to see if the peep would expand as the air pressure dropped the higher it went.
I know it wasn't in a total vacuum at 90,000 feet,but it had to be pretty low,don't you think?

This is very cool.

It's great to see the stratosphere is the same color then the last time I went there!

Here is an update on how they did it very detailed and alot of info.


The science and engineering behind Lego Man’s balloon voyage



A 1,200-gram weather balloon, the crucial role of gravity, quiver-reducing ropes, Styrofoam’s versatility, burst altitude, a University of Wyoming website and a free software program for shutterbugs were part of the formula Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17, used to launch, film and land the patriotic, flag-bearing Lego Man.

Yeah, sending a balloon with a package weighing a few grams to the edge of space, not even low Earth orbit, makes NASA, who landed humans on the Moon, look like a fool.
