LEGO Shuttle Takes A Voyage Into Outer Space

Young Romanian Raul Oaida recently uploaded a video of the footage captured when he sent a LEGO space shuttle on a high-altitude flight in a weather balloon. He launched the toy in Germany with his father (due to the more lenient flight clearance rules there), attached to a 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium, and also a GoPro Hero video camera and a GPS device to track its progress and recover it afterwards. The LEGO space shuttle reached a maximum altitude of 35,000 meters and captured some impressive video footage, which you can see below:
