Default Paper plane launched into space

Wow, even the BBC covered it...
BBC News - Amateur space enthusiasts launch paper plane into space

I've been following this since the beginning, there's a load of stuff on it at The Register:
PARIS in 89,000 ft climax PARIS laid bare in intimate snaps
PARIS joins the 17-mile-high club

Very impressive considering the budget and materials

Cool, but I'm not happy with people referring to a 27km altitude as space.

Perhaps it isn't true 'space' but I still find this amazing considering it was built as a project by staff of a sci/tech news website, out of paper
