12:10pm Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No it's a super ted.
What is believed to be the first ever teddy bear in space crash landed in a Braintree field.
Charlie the bear was launched on the back of a weather balloon from Ardingly in Sussex and rocketed more than 140,018ft into near space before landing in a cornfield near Blackmore End.
