Spare a moment for the fallen.
A tiny astronaut has gone missing after making to to space atop a weather balloon.
Yes, the astronaut is only 25cm tall and named Mojo Man - but when's the last time you went to space?
The doll was launched 20 miles into the stratosphere mounted on a CD of The Planets Suite by Gustav Holst and atop equipment which took pictures on the edge of space.
On his journey Mojo Man endured temperatures of -55C less than one per cent of the pressure at the Earth's surface.
Unfortunately, though, his moment of glory was brief, and apparently the little guy fell off the craft as it descended.
The helium-filled weather balloon was designed to swell to about seven metres and burst when the atmospheric pressure became too low.

The electronic equipment and camera was attached to a parachute, but it is thought a piece of cord separated the spaceman from the rig.
"The project worked perfectly and we captured 2.5 hours of high definition video of the flight from launch to landing," said Shaun, from Grimston, near Melton, Leicestershire.
"The rest of the equipment eventually landed but sadly there was no sign of the astronaut.
"We've looked at the video and think he was knocked off his perch when the balloon burst and fell somewhere around Leicester."
Whitehead said he is keen to recover Mojo Man as he wants to use him for a future project.
"We hollowed him out to make him very lightweight, which will have slowed his descent and given him a better chance of survival," he said.
"The plastic he is printed from, ABS, is also very tough so I have high hopes for his survival and if someone finds him I'd love them to get in touch."
