It's one small step for man, one giant leap for hamburger kind

The guys behind London burger joint Chosen Bun have sent a burger and side of chips into the stratosphere. Just because.


Using a balloon the size of a two bedroom house, plenty of helium, a GPS transponder and a parachute, Pete Sharman and Andy Shove have taken the humble fast food to a place no other burger and chips combo has ever gone before.


While the patty eventually returned to Earth stone cold, the chips were never found. So, does E.T. like fast food, then? 


Check them out in flight. It's surprisingly relaxing ...
