Scientists have launched plenty of people and things into space, but a British supermarket is the first to send up a piece of breaded protein.
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Iceland Foods Ltd., commonly known as Iceland, sent a chicken nugget into the cosmos.
The nugget spent an hour “floating” in space in low pressure and temperatures that can drop to -65 degrees Celsius, according to Sent Into Space.
“We’ve all changed the way we shop in recent months and frozen food has never been so popular. We’re looking forward to continuing to celebrate our 50th year with customers and thanking them for their support.”
