Watch related videos from these video collections:

Two weeks ago, Canadian teens Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad launched a helium balloon and a lego minifig into the upper atmosphere — approximately 80,000 feet up — equipped with four cameras to witness the experiment and a GPS for recovery. 

We love experiments like this! For more about the project, there’s a tv news report about Mathew and Asad from CBC’s The National.
