Take A Look At This!

Take a look at this!
Legos have conquered the final frontier! Two Canadian teens spent a year designing a contraption they could send into the space using a weather balloon. It was equipped with four cameras, a g-p-s, and a Lego man holding a Canadian flag. The device flew 80,000 feet into the stratosphere before the balloon burst. A parachute helped it float safely back to earth. Using the GPS, the teens were able to recover it, along with these amazing images.

A suspected robber wearing a scary clown mask didn't frighten the 80-year-old owner of a convenience store in Sacramento, California. He confronted the intruder -- who police say fired off a shot but didn't hit anyone -- and eventually ripped his mask off. The storeowner says he'd been a police officer in India. Police are hoping d-n-a from the mask will help them find the suspect.

This dazzling display lit up the skies over Sweden earlier this week.
The auroras were sparked by the largest solar flare in seven years, which sent a shower of radioactive solar particles to earth. This time-lapse video was shot over three hours.
Auroras from the solar storm could be seen in many countries across the northern hemisphere.
