It looks like Canada has won the international Lego Man space race. Two 17 year old students, Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad successfully launched a Lego Man 24 kilometers above the earth.
The Lego Man, sporting a Canadian flag, successfully twirled through the air for 97 minutes before returning to earth.
Ho and Muhammad were inspired two years ago, after watching a video of a balloon sent to space by students at M.I.T.
The Lego Man’s journey into space was documented after the boys attached four cameras to the balloon, producing absolutely amazing footage.
Watch the whole journey here, and check out some stunning photos snapped from high above.
A beautiful space for The Beautiful Game. The Casa Toluca, designed by Mexican architect Fernando Romero combines gorgeous home design with an immaculate soccer field.
The Casa Toluca reminds me of another famous sports venue located behind a house.

For someone who finds mission statements as prehistoric and trite as I do, the Holstee Manifesto is a breath of fresh air.
Instead or writing a cookie cutter “mission statement” for their lifestyle and clothing company, Holstee created a wonderfully inspiring video that conveyed the company ethos, while inspiring viewers.
Sure enough, the Holstee Manifesto has been shared over 500,000 times, and viewed over 60 million times online. I’d like to see those kind of numbers for a mission statement.
Great idea from the Professional Squash Association to increase awareness and visibility for the sport. Instead of holding their annual J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions at a traditional venue, they are playing in the heart of Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
If you can’t make it to Grand Central, you can still watch highlights from the tournament!
