The Kid Should See This

Eighteen miles above Earth: A Toy Train in Space

We’ve seen a lot of videos that send things up into the stratosphere, but Ron Fugelseth and his 4-year-old kid did this, plus one (animated) step more when they sent the kiddo’s favorite toy train eighteen miles up!  

Lifted by a weather balloon, and accompanied by a taped up orange styrofoam box with an HD camera and a GPS-equipped phone, the train traveled up to see the earth’s curvature and then came falling back down, landing 27 miles from where it launched.

Looks like the train had fun.

Thanks, @rogier, kvetchup, and @alexkuhl.
