DailyDirt: Kids Do The Darndest Things

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Helium balloon rides to the edge of space seem to be getting more popular these days. Anyone can do it, so a bunch of kids are. It's the new Mentos-and-Diet-Coke thing to do. Still, it's fun, so here are few interesting "space" projects from kids. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I truly don't understand the reasoning behind these nasa projects. Lets put a bunch of crap in space and see if it lives/germinates/etc in zero-g. If zero-g is such a problem why don't they just make ships that spin? It's the old zero-g pen vs. just grab a pencil joke in a new form.
    done and done, yet another problem costing us who knows how much solved by yours truly. :) Maybe tomorrow I'll come up with an overly simplistic but potentially workable solution to world hunger.

    The balloon thing is pretty cool though.
