A Video NASA (Sadly) Does Not Know How To Make

Video: A Toy Train in Space

"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."

Keith's note: This gives me yet another excuse to link to my all-time favorite space video "Reach" - which resulted from a NASA competition. True to form, NASA promptly forgot about this video as soon as it was made.
