First Donut Launched Into Space

 

Two Swedish brothers decided to launch the first donut into space. Alexander and Benjamin Jonsson strapped the pastry to a weather ballon, sent it nearly 20 miles up and filmed the process.

Since it is cheaper to get flying permits in Norway than in Sweden, they chose to launch the donut from Askim, Norway.

"We like to do odd things and this felt very different. It was really fun to watch the video for the first time. We could see the doughnut hovering above the earth," Alexander Jonsson said.

Hardly in space, the International Space Station is a lot higher and that is not in space, just a low earth orbit.
