I remember a similar story where they sent a paper airplane to earth from the space station. They predicted it would survive re-entry because of it`s low mass, and it included a message of who to contact if it was ever found. I don`t think it ever was...

LadyMorgue, there isn`t any point. They just want to know for fun, like some people want to know if it`s possible to create a black hole just for fun.

I doubt that, at least one astronaut was given a teddybear to take with them by their kids <.<

Stratosphere for $120 (approx)?!

It`s been a while since I`ve played with model rockets, but I would definitely buy that kit.
