Ground control to Major Ted! Pupils at Toynbee School in Eastleigh teamed up with the Institute of Physics and the University of Southampton to send a teddy bear 34km into space.
Derek the bear's mission was to measure data in the stratosphere. He was equipped with a specially-designed space suit, made to withstand extremem temperatures and keep his data sensors safe for his day above Earth.
He took two stills cameras and a video camera with him to record his epic journey.
The project was the idea of Year 7 to 9 science pupils at Toynbee School as part of a physics experiment. Helped by the Institute of Physics and University of Southampton they launched Derek from near Ocknell Caravan park in Stoney Cross in the New Forest.
Derek landed safely in a tree in Chichester and was later retrieved by the team.
