“Canadians Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad managed to send a Lego Minifig out to the edge of space and they did it with a budget of just $400.
The boys bought an $85 weather balloon online, and rigged it to a styrofoam box equipped with three point-and-shoot cameras and a wide-angle video camera. They threw in $160 worth of helium from a party supply store, they sent Legonaut on his way, the toy ascended 80,000 feet over Ontario, recording the awesome footage in the video, before floating back to Earth some 97 minutes later on a homemade nylon parachute.
It landed near Rice Lake, some 75 miles away from the soccer field where it was launched. A GPS-enabled cell phone in the box helped the boys to locate it.
Check out Ho and Muhammad’s short film on the journey below (via Like Cool).
