Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin And a Chicken Nugget

Famous world know astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have recently been joined in the history books by no other but a chicken nugget.

These pictures show what is believed to be the first ever chicken nugget sent into space, reaching heights of more 110,000 feet above Earth–that’s about 880,000 nuggets high.

A team of experts in the field of stratospheric exploration created the perfect vessel for the nugget to travel in.

It was sent into space using a meteorological weather balloon filled with hydrogen that’s lighter than air to carry the tasty cargo up to the stratosphere.

Using a custom-designed launch vehicle including primary avionics, auxiliary satellite tracking, and an integrated camera support system taking video footage, the lone nugget was sent up, up, and away out of the Earth’s atmosphere.

The nugget was sent star-bound from a location close to the head office of the thriving UK supermarket chain called Iceland, in Deeside, North Wales.

Andrew Staniland, trading director of the chain, said, “2020 is a huge year for us as we celebrate our 50th birthday, and we wanted to find ways to mark the occasion, just like anyone celebrating a birthday in lockdown.

“What better way to show that our products are out of this world than by sending one of our customer favorites into space.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to celebrate our 50th year with customers and thanking them for their support.”
