Father and Son Send Toy Train on a Cosmic Adventure [VIDEO]

To infinity and beyond!

With the help of a weather balloon, an HD camera, and an old cell phone, Awesome Dad of the Day Ron Fugelseth sent Stanley, his four-year-old son’s favorite toy, into space. If that doesn’t sound like a particularly awesome thing for a father to do (did he trip over Stanley one too many times?), I should note that the old cell phone was used for its GPS, so Fugelseth and his son had no trouble retrieving Stanley after the balloon burst and the train fell 18 miles back to Earth.

As if the whole thing needed to be cuter (and emotional… surprisingly emotional *sniff*), Fugelseth used some AfterEffects wizardry to give Stanley a face. Don’t look at me; I’m not crying. It’s just been raining on my face.
