The Best Video of a Burger Launching into Space You'll Ever See

The fries make it into orbit too, before coming back down to earth.

The team behind Chosen Bun — the London-based burger delivery service with a puntastic name — decided to launch a burger and fries (or "chips") into space. The team claims that it's the first burger and chips that has gone into space, and explains that they did it for "no good reason." Fair enough.

So what does it take to get a burger into space? Just a "balloon the size of a two bedroom house, LOTS of helium, a GPS transponder, hand-warmers, a camera, a parachute, duck-tape and some string." But don't think of eating the burger once it returns back to Earth: As one guy put it, "I will die... It's ice cold." Go, watch.
