We’ve seen a man, a rocket, and so many other things go into space, so why not send some garlic bread as well?
YouTuber Tom Scott and a group of experts tied a loaf of garlic bread onto a weather balloon in attempt to launch it into space. Aside from sending it off, Scott wanted to test how the bread would taste once it’s been on the edge of the atmosphere for over two hours.
But, the reason for garlic bread specifically? Scott just said, “Because it’s delicious.” Who could disagree with that?
The goal was to get the garlic bread at least to the edge of space (which is a third of 100 kilometers up [328,084 feet]) with the help of some fisheye lens, radio GPS, and a server box. They were able to track the landing of the bread and successfully capture it to test their theory.
So, what the difference between “earthbound bread” and “stratospheric bread?” Just imagine the bread you’ve launched in space was just taken out of the freezer, barely cooked in the microwave, and eaten. You may want to eat food already cooked on earth.
