Fresh off the news that Iran sent a monkey into space, a 13 year old California girl decided to one up them by blasting her Hell Kitty doll to the stars.

The seventh-grade girl sent a Hello Kitty doll into near space for a science project, upstaging baking soda volcanoes worldwide.

When Lauren Rojas decided to propel a weather balloon carrying a rocket through the stratosphere, she knew of one thing that would make the project even more exciting: Hello Kitty.

“I liked her ever since I was 6 years old,” Lauren told the Daily News. “My love for Hello Kitty has never gone away and I thought it would be really fun to add a toy inside the rocket.”

So Lauren strapped in her Hello Kitty doll thatĀ her fatherĀ got her on a business trip in Tokyo. She collected the flight gear from High Altitude Science and attached GoPro Hero2 video cameras to record the journey.

I guess you could say that’s one small step for man and one giant leap for Hello Kitty.
