The coolest Dad ever....

This morning I came across an unusual video and just needed to share it with you. This cool Dad had the courage to convince his son to shoot his favourite toy into space. Only show this video to your kids if you are willing to do the same.

Here is Ron Fugelseth description of this ingenious project:

"On Aug 24th 2012 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.

Here's the original video I made of my son and Stanley when he was 2 years old, documenting the beginning of their friendship. I shot it over 5 months:"
