Harvard Student Sends Burger To Space! [VIDEO]
I think the hamburger is the perfect food. Wimpy and the Hamburgular would agree, but I don't think they would want to send one into outerspace, they would rather eat it. A group of friends from Harvard University launched a hamburger into space and recorded it for posterity. Local hamburger chain b.good contributed $1,000 and a rather large burger to the project. The burger launched in Sturbridge on Oct. 27.
The hamburger was attached to a 600g weather balloon with a GoPro Hero camera and a HTC Rezound phone for GPS tracking. The burger-rigged camera reached an altitude of 30,000m, according to their YouTube page.
The food pod was recovered in a tree 130 miles north of Boston in Byfield. The students first tried to use a crossbow to get the package down but eventually hired a man to climb and retrieve the camera after several days and a storm.
How much would they have to pay you to eat that burger that went to space?
