article imageHamburger flies into space

By Matthew Hendricks     Jul 17, 2013 in Science
Five students from Harvard sent a hamburger into space in what they call "Operation Skyfall". A camera attached filmed its space mission.
According to metro.co.uk, the five Harvard students coated the hamburger with lacquer to help it withstand the elements.
The hamburger was then connected to a camera and a GPS system, attached to a helium balloon and sent on its way up.
It made it to almost 100,000 ft before the balloon burst and it came hurtling back down to earth.
It descended at 150 km/h and landed 130 miles from the take off point.
Abcnews.go.com reports that the students are Renzo Lucioni, Nuseir Yassin, Daniel Broudy, Jamie Law-Smith and Matt Moellman.
The burger was made by B.good burger.
Buzz60 (video above) reports that although this is the first hamburger that flew into space, another such remarkable space traveler was a Lego man, sent into space by another team of students, just for fun.
The Lego man has his own website on legomaninspace.com .
