Superman action figure soars to edge of space, returns to Earth

There's something wonderfully and refreshingly uplifting about this video, which chronicles DesignSpark's mission for Mattel Toys Italy to launch a Superman action figure to an altitude of 29,000 meters -- "to the edge of space" -- and bring it parachuting back to Earth. It's pretty amazing.

DesignSpark has provided more details at Instructables, including downloadable instructions so you can send your own action figure into the atmosphere.
