Lego Man in Space

Two Canadian high school students have successfully launched a Lego man almost 80,000 feet above sea level high enough to capture video of the plastic toy hovering above the curvature of the Earth.

The two teens, Matthew Ho and Asad Muhammed, were inspired to do the project about a year and a half ago when Ho saw a YouTube video of MIT students who sent a balloon to near space. Ho wanted to see if he could do it too.
