1st lego man in space

Hats off to two Toronto teens, who placed first Lego man into space, err, stratosphere!  Thanks goes to Universe Today, where website reports "...Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad lofted the tiny 2 inch tall Lego figure from a local Toronto soccer field up to a height of about 85,000 feet, or 16 miles (25 kilometers), where the 22 foot (7 m) diameter helium balloon burst in what is technically known as the stratosphere. The homemade styrofoam capsule – equipped with two video cameras and four digital cameras – then parachuted back to Earth." The capsule was recovered 120km away. You can catch complete recap here, "Lego Man In Space - The Video." How can you resist the adventure?
