This is some space science we can get behind here at GeekDad.

Students from Parkside and Colleridge schools helped to launch four teddies wearing space suits that they had designed. The teddies reached an altitude of just over 30 km and their temperatures were logged throughout the flight to see how they fared in the extreme cold. The different spacesuit designs resulted in distinct difference in the temperatures of the teddies.

You can check out a huge selection of wonderful near-orbit imagery (with cute bears) at the CU Spaceflight website.
