KFC Launches Chicken Sandwich Into Space Next Week

It’s one small step for a chicken sandwich, and one giant leap for fast food. On June 21, KFC plans to launch its Zinger chicken sandwich into a space via  a high-altitude solar-powered balloon known as a “stratollite,” a word combining “stratosphere” and “satellite.” The chicken sandwich will zip up to about 28.5 miles above Earth ― not quite the 62-mile threshold to be considered to be the edge of space, but, as the New York Times notes, it’s cheaper than shooting off an orbiting rocket. Assuming the launch goes off without a hitch, the balloon and the sandwich will float above Earth for at least four days, while the  stratollite records telemetry data to help future launches by World View, the  balloon’s manufacturer, according to the Associated Press. Whether anyone wants to eat the sandwich after that remains a mystery. KFC is funding the flight of the Zinger, which will mark the balloon’s first multi-day mission , according to Space.com.
