Lego shuttle almost reaches space

Romanian space fan Raul Oaida has taken a Lego rocket to a whole new level.

With the help of a massive helium balloon the little shuttle reached the mega height of around 35,000 metres - almost to the edge of space!

He couldn't get air traffic clearance for the lift off in his home country so had to travel to Germany to do the experiment.

Luckily he attached a small camera to the rocket to record the amazing journey so others could see it!
