A Fort Worth Company Is Launching Its Laptop Bags Into Space

Categories: Awesome

We're not sure how much Fort Worth-based Altego proved when it enlisted aeronautical engineering students at Texas A&M to attach its Polygon Sunfire laptop bag to a weather balloon and launch it into space. They were trying to make a point about durability, but I'm pretty sure my neon green Jansport from junior high would have fared equally well on the trip, as would most inanimate objects.

But such quibbles obscures the broader message here, which is that launching things into space is awesome. Laptop bags somewhat less so than Dirk Nowitzki bobbleheads, but still. It's space.

Can we nominate things and/or people to be launched into space?  Starting with local politicians?
