Cambridge University's Space Flight science club recently launched two teddy bears into space -- on a total budget of $90.

The bears, named MAT and KMS, were decked out in custom-made space suits and launched on a weather balloon more than 18 miles above the Earth in the four-hour expedition.

After completing their mission the pair parachuted back to earth and made a soft landing just 50 miles from their launch pad.

Have you ever seen a pair of bears that high?

Okay, outside of a West Hollywood hot tub.
