High-flying pasty soars into space
A school in Cornwall has sent a Cornish pasty to the edge of space. Hayle Community School sent the savoury treat skyward via a weather balloon, which is a balloon usually filled with helium gas, to record information and the weather. It reached an incredible 35,482 metres. The pasty was suspended there for 93 minutes, and the temperature was so cold, at -62oC, that the balloon popped and the pasty returned to Earth frozen, landing on Bodmin Moor.
