This is truly amazing on so many levels. Mainly though, kudos to the father who took the time to instill the skills of innovating and adventuring in his son’s mind at such a young age. In fact, he even started a website titled Brooklyn Space Program(more cool videos there) dedicated to this topic. Other parents should take notes on this one, or at least (if you live in the NYC area) send their kids there.
On a planning and executing level, this idea is a feat of engineering. It makes me want to try it one day, or at least participate in such an experience in the future. Who knows, maybe with my kids many years from now :)
The video is about 7 minutes long, but it really does a good job capturing each stage of the ascent, and explaining each level.
