A fast food firm has become the first to send a sample of their cuisine in to orbit using a balloon.
The founders of Chosen Bun burger in Fulham, England, are no strangers to space-based publicity stunts having previously attempted to launch a sample of their produce in to orbit during an ill-fated attempt in June that failed due to a faulty camera.
Not content with leaving it at that however the pair returned again at the end of September with a second attempt to record footage of their finest consumables soaring high above the heavens.
This time fortunately things went according to plan with the adventurous foodstuffs reaching a height of 112,000ft above the planet's surface. The camera also worked without a hitch and captured the glorious spectacle of the burger and chips set against a background of the curvature of the Earth.
