Obama Bobblehead Launched Into Stratosphere (Romney, Too)



The U.S. presidential campaign was a political rollercoaster ride for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, but it couldn't compare to the ride their bobblehead dolls took earlier this week.

On Monday (Nov. 5) the day before President Obama defeated Romney to win a second term in the White House a group of California schoolkids launched bobbleheads of the two candidates to the stratosphere aboard a high-altitude balloon.

Middle and high school students in the Earth to Sky Calculus club launched a bobblehead of Mitt Romney into the stratosphere on Nov. 5, 2012 (one day before Election Day) using a weather balloon.

"We estimate that the balloon reached 120,000 ," Earth to Sky Calculus, a group of middle- and high-schoolers from Bishop, Calif., wrote on Facebook Wednesday. "It was a crystal clear, gorgeous fall day in the western United States!"
