Father & Son Send Toy Into Space (Video)

“Hey Dad, what are we gonna do this weekend?”  Not sure if that is how this video was inspired but it certainly turned out to be an eventful weekend for one young man, his dad and a toy train.

Here is the story from RonIsNeat :

We sent my son’s favorite train “Stanley” to space in a weather balloon with a HD camera and an old cell phone for GPS. He was recovered 27 miles away in a corn field and we got some great footage of the trip. This video documents the journey from liftoff to landing.

My 4 year old and Stanley are inseparable like Calvin and Hobbes. He’s been attached to him since he was two, and they play, sleep and do everything together. I animated Stanley’s face with After Effects and Photoshop to bring him to life how I imagine my son sees him.
