A KFC Zinger sandwich is about to hit new heights.
The meal is being hurled into the stratosphere by World View Enterprises sometime around June 21. It will shipped up there on a Stratollite balloon vehicle. Why? Why Not!
The company says "Sure, this whole chicken sandwich payload is a bit funny. But, KFC gets to embark upon a one-of-a-kind marketing experiment, while we get to pursue our first multi-day shakedown cruise in the stratosphere. It's a win for all."
In case you’re wondering, it was KFC’s idea. Will there be a colonel in space?
