Kids Shoot LEGO Figure Into Space

Two Canadian kids have sent a LEGO minifig boldly where few LEGO minifigs have gone before: into space.

While they're not the first to accomplish the feat, it's the way they accomplished it that's awesome. Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, aged only 17, built a weather balloon from scratch, even sewing the parachutes that brought the little LEGOnaut, and the cameras which recorded his 78,000 feet-high journey, safely back to Earth.

You can check out pictures of his trip, and some video as well, at the link below.
