Now this is too cool not to share. Bunch of dudes send a Lego Space Shuttle into space on a weather balloon with a camera strapped to it.

In the video you get to see the Space Shuttle’s ascent up up up all the way till you get to see the curvature of our planet Earth.
I would love to try something like this out someday. There’s just something special and poignant about seeing a toy model of a space shuttle going into space.
