Ahead of the World Pie Eating Championships in Wigan, England, a group of space enthusiasts aimed to make history by becoming the first to send a meat and potato pie into space.
The pastry was attached to a weather balloon and sent aloft while a camera filmed the action. Ostensibly, this was an extremely British science experiment with a very lofty goal. From the BBC:
The aim is to see if its journey up to 100,000ft (30km) changes the molecular structure of the pie making it quicker to eat.
As you’ll see in the video below, the stunt went off without a hitch, although we don’t get to see whether it survived the impact following its return to Earth… or the sheep that appear to be near the landing site.
