Two things equally different but both amazing a lego man who was sent to near space, and the childhood dream of an ever lasting bug in a jar, could it be, the impossible… now possible.
I read the news on a daily basis, searching for anything to pass the time. Last week I came across a video of a lego man being sent into near space by teenagers.

As someone who has an incredible fear of insects big and small, I have to say butterflies could never ever be hated! And now there is an invention that beats all things cruel to the insect life.
