Building a LEGO Space shuttle isn’t exactly awe inspiring.  Send it to space?  Now we’re talking.

Teenager Oaida Raul teamed up with Steve Sammartino to send a Lego Space Shuttle 115,000 feet into the Earth’s upper atmosphere.  Needless to say, the video looks pretty fake, though for now we’re assuming it is in fact real (why wouldn’t it be?).  To achieve this magnamus feat, Raul used a 1600g Weather Balloon, a GoPro Hero video camera and a GPS tracker for recovery.
