KFC CHICKEN SANDWICH GOES INTO OUTER SPACE TODAY

posted by Mark Robertson - 

The launch of a stratospheric balloon carrying a fast-food chicken sandwich to the edge of space was delayed until today (Thursday). The sandwich’s four-day flight is a promotional stunt for Kentucky Fried Chicken, but it will be a test for World View Enterprises, a company developing high-altitude balloons for applications ranging from weather monitoring to tourism. The flight was scheduled for yesterday (Wednesday) but was delayed due to weather conditions.  The balloon will reach altitudes of between 60,000 and 75,000 feet — about twice as high as commercial airliners fly. KFC will livestream the launch, beginning between 7 and 8 AM EDT.
