"Hello Kitty" in space is adorable and educational

(CBS News) When I was a student, I had some pretty lofty and wild ideas when it came to class science experiments. And then time would pass, the project would be due soon and I'd usually end up with a papier-mache volcano or slideshow on photosynthesis. Total yawn, I know. Luckily, one young girl is a lot more dedicated to seeing her projects through than your blogger here. So on that note, watch a "Hello Kitty" doll head into space in the video above. For science!

That is one seriously impressive middle school science project, right? The adorable and educational video was posted by YouTube user Melody Green who writes about her experiment:
