MINNEAPOLIS -- Science and sports collided at Target Field Sunday when University of Minnesota engineering students launched a weather balloon to kick off Aerospace Week.
Students attached a baseball to the balloon before they sent it 80,000 ft into the stratosphere.
The balloon wound up landing about 15 miles east of River Falls, Wisconsin.
