Missing Too

Steve went to the edge of space, and then he went missing — let’s hope he isn’t cracked. The egg-stronaut from Key Peninsula Middle School in Lakebay, Wash., lost its tracker when the weather balloon that carried it into the upper atmosphere popped, according to the school’s theory. The data the school does have suggests the balloon popped over Des Moines, Wash., and based on weather data the school estimates the egg landed in the Tiger Mountain area. So they’re putting up flyers asking people there to keep an eye out for the egg. The school’s last egg-splorer, Phil, was successfully retrieved after setting an egg-drop record. (AC/KOMO Seattle) ...Meanwhile, the guy who attached the tracker this time has egg on his face.
