High-fly­ing pasty soars into space

The Week - Junior - - Front Page -

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.
