What do you need to be "Dad of the Year"? Get a balloon, a camera and a cellphone and a toy train and send it to space. Ron Fugelseth sent his 4 year old son's favorite toy train into space in a weather balloon using an HD camera and an old cellphone for GPS. It floated 18 miles above the ground before it burst.

The toy was later recovered 27 miles away and made it back into the hands of the owner, and the video above documents the father son experiment.
