Canadian teens Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad spent about $400 to create a homemade rig that went 15 miles above the earth surface and sent back amazing pictures of the earth. The 17-year olds from Toronto bought a $85 weather balloon, rigged it to a styrofoam box, added three point and shoot cameras, a wide-angle video camera, a dash of superglue, and of course, the Lego minifig. The homemade rig went some 80,000 feet into the air before starting its descent back to the earth.
