Teens launch LEGO man into outer space
A LEGO man was sent on an odyssey about 80,000 feet into the stratosphere by two Canadian teens via a homemade weather balloon and it was all caught on tape.
Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, two 17-year-olds from outside Toronto, designed and built a helium weather balloon for the Lego man‘s joyride, according to the Toronto Star. They mounted four different cameras to the contraption to record it all.
The toy cleared the the Earth’s atmosphere during the 97-minute journey and captured astonishing footage of the Earth from above.
