Teddy Bears in Space!

Four teddy bears voyaged to the edge of space in an experiment run by Cambridge University Spaceflight, with the SPARKS science club at Parkside Community College and Coleridge Community College. The bears were lifted to 30,085 metres above sea level on a latex high altitude balloon filled with helium. The aim of the experiment was to determine which materials provided the best insulation against the -53° C temperatures experienced during the journey. Each of the bears wore a different space suit designed by the 11-13 year olds from SPARKS.


Freakin’ 11-13 year olds. KIDS. Kids are AMAZING. They are testing space suits in SPACE. This is truly an exciting time for science :)
