YouTuber Tom Scott and his friends collaborated to send a loaf of garlic bread into space up to 35 km altitude and then ate it when it came back down. Now that’s a headline you don’t see every day or a meal you can get on the go!
In the name of science, Scott wanted to see what garlic bread would taste like once it had been sent to space. To achieve this, him and his friends used a weather balloon, a server box, and a radio GPS. The balloon took the bread up to space, the server box was designed to close when the bread was falling to keep it fresh, and the radio GPS helped Scott find the bread after it fell back down to Earth. The entire process took a little over two hours and they used an adjusted lens to capture the garlic bread in space.
If you’re wondering why the YouTuber chose garlic bread specifically, and Tom Scott had a good answer: “Because it’s delicious.”
As for the taste testing, watch the video above to find out how the bread fared. You should know that the garlic bread in question was homemade, so no expense was spared in this quirky endeavor.
