Potato dressed as santa

A group of school  children from Devon launched a weird space mission, which they named "Spudnik2".  They dressed a potato like  Santa Claus and placed in a drinks bottle that was attached to an extra large helium balloon. It was also fitted with a camera and GPS system. Spudnik2 went 17 miles up in the sky, burst and floated down.  Spudnik2 landed at about 140 miles away in Hampshire. It even captured pictures of the Earth.
