Two teens from Toronto successfully launched a Lego figure into near space — and launched a storm of interest on the Web.
Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, 17-year-old classmates at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, took four months, many Saturdays, and $400 to carry a Lego figurine and four cameras miles above the earth, a project that the two did for fun, not for class.
“We didn’t really believe we could do it until we did,” Ho told the Toronto Star.
You can see the video they made, using the stunning photos of the Lego man 78,000 feet off the ground, here.
