I knew there was a good use for Hello Kitty! It took a very clever 7th grader to figure it out! Lauren Rojas from Antioch, CA did this as her entry in a science fair; "The effects of altitude on air pressure and temperature." Unless some other kid builds a working scale model of the Mars Rover, Lauren should win this thing hands down!
Might need a little Dramamine watching the video. Take note where the kitty lands after re-entry. Kind of ironic. All kidding aside, Good for Lauren!! This gives me hope for her generation and our future!
