It's killing me because I cannot embedded the darn thing in the post - not matter what i do so just click the link and watch. Read the description first if you don't know what it's about. Also, it's about 30 minutes long.

Scenes from the Suburbs

I had been waiting and waiting for this to be viewable online and only found it yesterday so I decided to share.

This is kinds cool, for those who haven't seen it. Legoman.

Why build a Gingrichian lunar colony, which would cost billions, when you can send a man nearly into space for only $400?

That's what Canadians Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad did with an albeit plastic man from Lego and a modified weather balloon.

The 17-year-olds from Toronto bought an $85 weather balloon online and rigged it to a Styrofoam box equipped with three point-and-shoot cameras and a wide-angle video camera.

They threw in $160 worth of helium from a party supply store, a dash of superglue, and voila, a Legonaut was born.

The toy ascended 80,000 feet over Ontario, recording the awesome footage in the video below, before floating back to Earth some 97 minutes later on a homemade nylon parachute.

It landed near Rice Lake, some 75 miles away from the soccer field where it was launched. A GPS-enabled cell phone onboard told the boys where to go.
