Dad Sends His Son’s Toy Train On A Space Trip

On Aug 24th 2012 Ron Fugelseth sent his 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.”
