This dad wanted to teach his kids an important lesson so he sent this teddy bear to space. He is a software engineer and he said the whole point was to inspire kids and encourage them to dream big, "To show that seemingly impossible things become possible with creativity and hard work."
He launched the bear up using a helium balloon, it was equiped with a tracker and parachute, which it used to come back down and land about 25 miles from the launch site. That's so cool, I want a teddy bear that went to space, but then I think I would also be frightened for the teddy bear. Haha. Check out the video!
