Lego near-space experience

Nice inspiration for a Friday afternoon.  This video shows what a couple of 17yr olds can do with some imagination (and no nearby flight-paths).
The story, from Shiv Malik at The Guardian, is worth reading as well.

This is similar to but not quite as good as James May's Man Lab experiment sending some animal ashes into space. That had some very interesting comparisons of Hydrogen versus Helium in ascent speeds and height. James May had the advantage of a team working with him. I think the two lads must be very pleased.
