A Toy Train in Space

This is the story about a father who sent his son’s favorite toy train Stanley into space. Strapped to a weather balloon with an HD camera and an old cell phone used as a GPS, Ron Fugelseth was able to capture Stanley’s amazing voyage which reached 18 miles high over the clouds. He was recovered 27 miles away in a corn field. This touching video documents his journey from liftoff to landing. – Jill Topol
