Cool Dad Sends Child’s Toy In To Space
Every time you step on your kids' Legos, you wish you could launch every one of those plastic bastards in to space. One dad sent his kid's toy there and it wasn't as a punishment.
Sometimes kids have it rough. Whether they're being strapped to car hoods or walking in on "intimate" moments. However one dad earned his "cool" stripes for the day, by sending his son's toy train in to space.
Using a weather balloon, protective box, GPS tracking, and an iPhone one YouTube user documented the toy's trip to the very edge of the Earth. The ascent took nearly an hour, and the descent took 20 minutes after the balloon burst.
With some creative video editing (I'm going to assume that train really isn't alive) you can watch the entire trip below.
