Canadian Lego In Space!!!

Two 17 year old Canadian Grade 12 students sent a Lego man into space and captured the entire 97 minute flight on video.

The helium filled balloon used to send the Lego man (with Canadian Flag in hand) to space reached 24 kilometers above sea level. (almost 15 miles).

And it was all done by high school age kids (17 I believe).
i saw this on like 5 different websites. (gets around doesn't he)

LOL... yes, he's making his rounds everywhere it seems.
Sure does. :)
It is quiet amazing indeed.
When i look back at what we used to do on my school, than this would be like watching a sciencefiction event come to live.
And those kids just did it for real, so in one word: WOW!

That's wicked cool.

Did you know there's enough minifigs in the world to encircle the globe about five times? (weird fact)

o_0 Wow. That's a lot.
Their also the largest tire distributor.

I guess it's my turn to be the anti-joke chicken :-)

Legally, outer space starts at an altitude of 100 km, and physically, at about 118 +/- 0.3 km.

In any event, awesome video, and there's just nothing cooler than a LEGO Mountie (seems to have lost his hat, but I'd recognize that bright red dress coat anywhere!) claiming the High Ground.
I think that's more "false statement Dwight"

False, outer space starts at an altitude of 100 km, and physically, at about 118 +/- 0.3 km.

LOL... I agree, (but I did only say "space")... :P

I so would have loved to see the "anti-joke chicken" link but *sigh*, it leads no where.... perhaps that's the joke???

excuse me while I break out in song, "Oh Canada, our home and native land..." :P
Oops. That's because I set up the anchor, and forgot to past the URL into it :-(
