Pupils at a school in York are attempting to send a teddy bear into space - using the same computer hardware that astronaut Tim Peake is using for some of his experiments on the International Space Station.
The bear has been placed in a payload attached to a high altitude balloon by students at the Queen Margaret School in York. The project is to coincide with International Women's Day.
