This lamb chop clearly has the right stuff.
Indeed, Nikesh Shukla and Nick Hearne launched a lamb chop from the East London restaurant Tayyabs into space in order to promote Shukla’s new book, Meatspace. They attached it to a helium balloon along with a camera and sent it on its way to ascend at 1,000 feet per minute for 95 minutes. At that point, the balloon burst and cut GPS contact with the ground.
The camera’s wreckage was eventually found five months later by a farmer in Dorset. It yielded 100 minutes of the lamb chop’s flight that took it 32,000 feet into the sky.
