We Sent Garlic Bread to the Edge of Space, Then Ate It

  • Publicado em 22 Abr 2018
  • The title says it all, really. Thanks to Barry from My Virgin Kitchen - go see him cook and test three different garlic breads here: brclip.com/video/jYPYbIO9BLE/video.html - and to Steve from Random Aerospace, www.randomengineering.co.uk/Ra... ! Pull down the description for more details.
    This started as a conversation in a pub a few weeks ago, and turned into one of the more ridiculous videos I've ever done. We send home-made garlic bread skyward on a balloon; exposed it to the stratosphere, 35km up; successfully returned it to earth in a protective box; and then ate it. It tasted... cold.

    This is about as close as I get to vlogging. Have a look at Barry's video to see his garlic bread and garlic butter recipes; and if you ever want to send anything to the edge of space, you should definitely hire Steve!

    Imagine if once he let go of the camera it just played the Bread POV straight with no commentary or intermission until it fell back to the ground and they found it, where the video would start proper. That'd be a bit of a headtrip because you'd just be watching bread go to space for no reason until it's explained at the landing site.

    2:38 A temperature of 4,4c at 35km height, but -7,3c at 30,4km, it just shows how powerful the ozone layer is by controlling the temperature in our atmosphere/stratosphere by either letting in more UV-B light when it's depleted or reflecting UV-B light when stable. No amount of C02 could ever have that significant effect.

    Am I the only people thinking that the garlic bread would taste good after its came down, it looks so fresh xD.

    Imagine being a builder, just putting walls, then seeing a piece of garlic bread fly over your house. What do you do?
