Friday NTDWF post


The Nothing To Do With Fatherhood series is an avenue for me to post fun stuff that pops up every now and again. Of course, you could try some of these things at home if you are that way inclined. I just don't have the time, or more relevantly I suppose, the pocket money.

Todays NTDWF is the recent accomplishment of sending a paper plane into space, collecting photos, then recovering the aircraft after its ~45 min flight back. Cool. Taking the DIY-balloon-to-the-edge-of-space thing up another notch. IMHO though, Joe Kittinger still has the jump on them by a long way.
