Oh hell yes this is a video of a sushi roll floating into the upper reaches of the atmosphere before plummeting back to earth. It's the Godzirra Roll from DC-area restaurant Sticky Rice, to be specific. They just shellacked that roll onto a plate, attached a camera, added a sound track, and boom: space sushi. (It actually took six months of planning including working around "-60F in space, FAA regulations, overheating or freezing batteries, GPS issues, stabilization, and how to make the damn sushi stay together in high winds.") Did it taste out of this world?
