Video of the Day: 7th grader builds, launches Hello Kitty rocket

Lauren Rojas is just your typical seventh grader, except that she decided to build a rocket and launch it (along with a Hello Kitty doll) up as high as it would go. Here's ABC News on the story:

Lauren Rojas, a 12-year-old from Antioch, Calif., got the idea after seeing a television commercial in which a balloon was launched into the sky. She thought she could do the same with her Hello Kitty doll. She would test air pressure and temperature at high altitude for her school's science fair.

Watch this intrepid Hello Kitty doll travel here and there in the video.
