Seventh grade girl builds rocket, sends Hello Kitty into the upper atmosphere

A seventh grader has made good on the dreams of middle schoolers everywhere by sending Hello Kitty into the stratosphere. According to ABC News:

Lauren Rojas, a 12-year-old from Antioch, Calif., got the idea after seeing a television commercial in which a balloon was launched into the sky. She thought she could do the same with her Hello Kitty doll. She would test air pressure and temperature at high altitude for her school’s science fair.

And so she did. With these incredible results. (via io9 Seventh grade girl builds rocket, sends Hello Kitty into the upper atmosphere)
