Scientists launch pastry into stratosphere


A group of amateur scientists have launched
a pastry into the stratosphere. Why they did it – no one knows. But it has captured some
dazzling and bizarre images of the dessert flying far above the Earth. The fake pastry
treat was stuck to a home-made spacecraft called the ‘Cannolo Transporter’. This was then attached to a large helium-filled
balloon and released into the sky. The aircraft rose to at least 29,000 feet
but after only two hours came crashing back down to earth. After a run in with some sheep and a trek
through muddy farmland the team reclaimed their precious invention.

  1. 0:40 "The aircraft rose to at least twenty nine thousand feet" – That is the height at which airliners fly at. What she meant to say was 29,768 meters which is about 97,664 feet. If she bothered to watch the video then she would have clearly seen this on the screen – Doh !
