7th Grade Girls Send Hello Kitty to the Edge of Space, Make Cool Video


Well, this sure makes me want to do some science this weekend. 7the graders at Cornerstone Christian school performed this experiment on “the effects of altitude on air pressure and temperature.” And presumably also on a Hello Kitty doll inside a lovingly spray-painted rocket ship.

    I felt kinda bad for Hello Kitty when her weather balloon burst, sending her plummeting back to earth.

    Studies have shown that kitties are more suited for space travel than monkeys.

    I love that after mentioning “It was fifty feet up in a tree” the ending credits, without further comment, include “Woodpecker Arborists” in the ‘thanks go out to:’ list.

    Guess we know how they got it down. :)

    These kids are really awesome! I will always be forever young at heart. :)
    I bet when they all grown up, some of them will take up engineering and fulfill these dreams. :)
