This is officially my new coolest thing in the world. Nanoraves by kingmancheng

"Two Canadian teenagers have sent a Lego man into the outer reaches of the Earth's atmosphere using a home-stitched parachute and equipment found on Craigslist.

Two weeks ago, Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, both 17, attached the plastic figurine replete with maple leaf flag to a helium balloon, which they sent 80,000 feet into the air.

The pair managed to capture the entire journey into the blackness of space, including the descent, which lasted 97 minutes, using four cameras, at an entire cost of just £254."

:lol: I think it's just a trick of the light, I did notice some weird things.

It would be ironic though, seeing as men have been trying to find solid evidence of life out there and a Lego man beats us to it. :roll:

It would be cool to see how fella would hold up. The vacuum of space might just squash him, since there would be air in side of him.
