A couple of Canadian high school students, Matthew Ho and Asad Muhammad, coordinated a space mission for the smallest known astronaut - a LEGO man. The two used a weather balloon, Styrofoam and cameras to capture it all in HD Video.

The balloon quickly rose up to near space before the balloon popped. The footage is pretty great too, considering the entire project rang in around $400.
