Here’s the amazing experiment coming out of Slovakia, where a thousand little LEGO astronauts were sent into space with a tiny spaceship.
A very special test took place in Slovakia on May 20: a group of space architects and engineers took a small spacecraft out of a small airfield Puzzle Games With a thousand little astronauts inside.

The architects and engineers came from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and were led by Tomas Rusek, Xtend Design Architect. The goal was to get new generations excited about space exploration.
LEGO astronauts took off in three separate balloons from the stratosphere, flying 34 kilometers before exploding. The entire spacecraft weighed about 2.7 kilograms, and was built from carbon, stainless steel, and 3D-printed plastic.
Dominik Matusinsky, executive director at marketing agency Kreativ Gang, who created this campaign for LEGO, said:
Getting the minifigures to stay aboard the space shuttle after the balloon exploded was a challenge. We wanted the thumbnails to be exposed directly into the space, without being stored inside anything. However, during the free fall phase, they reached speeds of up to 300 km/h, which was quite a challenge.
