lego man in spaaaaaaace



One small step... In Toronto, two teens have made headlines for sending a Lego figure carrying a Canadian flag into the stratosphere with a weather balloon, and capturing the tiny toy man's space journey on camera: Lego man in space: one (very) small step - video.

Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17, attached four cameras to a homemade styrofoam spacecraft and launched that sucker fifteen miles into the sky, recording and tracking the little Lego astronaut's incredible journey into the final frontier and back. Check out the video:



Props to these two inventive kids. And also to the spacefaring Lego man -- hey, he is yellow, after all. Boldly going where no Canadian Lego man has gone before! More here: Lego man sent to space.
