Just spreading the word of equality in science. Girls rule! (ask my 4 yr old daughter)…

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s …. Hello Kitty??
I recently enjoyed reading about a 12 year old girl who shot a Hello Kitty doll into the earth’s stratosphere. Lauren Rojos, a 7th grader from Antioch, California took a science project literally to greater heights. Through the use of equipment from High Altitude Science, Lauren and her father put Hello Kitty on a weather balloon to test the temperature and air pressure.
The rocket-shaped contraption reached heights up to 93,625 feet (17.73 miles), where the balloon popped – and Hello Kitty fell from the sky landing 47 miles away.
