Girls Send a Hello Kitty Doll Into Almost-Space, Surely Igniting a Stuffed Animal Space Race

"Ever build a model rocket? Ever play with a Hello Kitty doll? This video is both of those things, simultaneously, and the fact that a group of seventh grade girls launched Hello Kitty most of the way up to the Kármán line (the boundary between Earth and the mysteries of the universe) should encourage you to do something science-y this Saturday, like going to the zoo or digging up a public park in the name of amateur paleontology."

Emailed to me this morning by L.; Kato and Rose likely working on their rocket right now.

I watched the amazing video with the sound off.  One of the best things the interwebs has recently served up, equal parts Prometheus and mad-science and The Mouse & His Child and that old 18th-century sublime.  Plus, one very brave little traveller in the face of a much, much larger world.
