That’s it… Steven Colbert’s fame has taken him to unparalleled new heights… space in fact. The creative team behind the very affordable 3D printer, MakerBot, have printed out the open-source head recently seen on the Colbert Report and sent it all the way to space under a weather balloon. The crew launched the Flip camera equipped craft from New York and found it via GPS in Connecticut. You’ll want to check out the video below for a look at the action… which brings us to todays WORD: Altitude.
