Teddy bears reach edge of space.

This story came from the Daily News and thought it was interesting.

These two teddy bears were strapped to a helium weather ballon and reached the edge of space. They had special spacesuits made by the school children.
Here are a few photos.
They made it back to earth safely, about 50 miles from the launch pad, so that was good.

Have a great weekend



  1. I'll bet those kids were so excited! What a neat idea for kids to learn more about space...

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend Carolyn!

    Take care
    Hugs, Nancy

  2. My son would love to help out with something like that! . . . but not with my teddy bears, LOL.

    Great story! Karen

  3. Whew....thank goodness they made it back safely!!
