This is pretty cool....Raul Oaida from Romania managed to construct a pretty sweet model of the retired space shuttle NASA once used to ferry astronauts from Earth into orbit. Apparently, Oaida wanted to make his model as realistic as possible, so he used a giant helium-filled balloon to fly his Lego space shuttle some 21 miles above the Earth's surface. Oaida tracked his space shuttle with a GPS, which allowed him to recover the model approximately 150 miles from where it was launched.
... The introduction to his video reads: "My name is Raul Oaida (from Romania) and this is my LEGO tribute to the end of the space shuttle era... I’ve always been profoundly inspired by spaceflight. The Lego Shuttle was the only space program I could afford."
