THE RIGHT STUFF

Speaking of Lego, did you hear about the two Toronto teens that launched a Lego Man 14 miles above sea level!

Matthew Ho and Asad Muhammad attached him to a weather balloon that soared about three times higher than your typical commercial airliner.

The 97-minute flight came down softly by parachute 100 kilometers away, where they tracked it down by GPS.

The pair of future aeronautical engineers recorded the entire flight.  

The best part: their video of Lego man glued to a gangplank above planet Earth, the New York Daily News reports.
