Stephen Colbert sent to space?

(CBS) - If you're a fan of The Colbert Report, you're aware that Mr. Stephen Colbert has a thing for space travel.

Well, MakerBot Industries, a company that specializes in creating 3D printers for do-it-yourselfers, brought him one step closer after launching a model of his head into outer space via weather balloon.

A FlipCam attached to the weather balloon captured its departure into space and GPS enabled cell phone helped track its location.

Hey - anything is better than that crummy treadmill NASA named after him.
