You're About To Witness The First Ever Chicken Sandwich In Space

You know that weird KFC ad where Rob Lowe, portraying Colonel Sanders, talks about sending the fast-food chain’s new Zinger chicken sandwich into space? 

Turns out he was dead serious: On Tuesday, the Arizona company World View Enterprises announced that a Zinger will be aboard the first flight of its high-tech balloon, which is reportedly capable of reaching the stratosphere. 

According to The New York Times, the balloon will stay aloft for four days. Hopefully someone will have consumed the Zinger long before it drifts back to earth.
