Top Gear, the totally sweet U.K. show about cars and blowing stuff up, just pulled perhaps their greatest stunt ever. Wait, no perhaps: this is the greatest. They built a space shuttle with a Reliant Robin strapped to its back then proceeded to launch it to the high heavens. It was actually the highest rocket launch in U.K. history, despite all of the big talk from the British Space Administration. Wait, is there even a British Space Administration? I don't think there is.
Anyhow, these crazy Brits do a great job of walking us through their insane project with a mixture of knowledge and trademark dry wit. This video is what the Internet was designed for, my friends. Watch as they build it, test it, and launch it. You won't be disappointed.
