A kebab shop owner in Turkey’s Adana province launched his famous pipe kabab into space.

On Tuesday ie: April 12, Chef Yaşar Aydın and Idris Albayrak, a space engineering student, attached a pipe kabab to a helium balloon and launched it into space.

According to a local publication, a specially designed box was made for the kebab’s space journey. This box held the dish in place and protected it from extreme temperatures. The box was also fitted with a camera and a tracking device. Then the box was tied to a powerful weather-resistant helium balloon before being launched into the sky.

Turkish news agency DHA reported the helium balloon exploded after it reached the height of 38 kilometres and then the kebab fell 121 kilometres away from its launch site into the sea.

They choose Tuesday as it fell on the International Day of Human Space Flight, which marked the day when Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person to complete one orbit of Earth on April 12, 1961.
