University Friends Launch a Hamburger into Space

Quote:
A group of friends from Harvard University launched a hamburger into space and recorded it for posterity.

Local hamburger chain b.good contributed $1,000 and a rather large burger to the project. The burger was launched in Sturbridge on Oct. 27.

The hamburger was attached to a 600g weather balloon with a GoPro Hero camera and a HTC Rezound phone for GPS tracking.

The burger-rigged camera reached an altitude of 30,000m.

The food pod was recovered in a tree 130 miles north of Boston in Byfield.

The students first tried to use a crossbow to get the package down but eventually hired a man to climb and retrieve the camera after several days and a storm.
