Cili Pizza in Space
Lithuanian pizza restaurant chain Čili celebrated its 15 year anniversary by launching a 20 cm diameter Haawaiian pizza into space, along with cameras, power supply and a parachute for safe landing. The 3:10 minute Cili Pizza in Space video (Pirma Pica Kosmose!) provides a before, during and after perspective. Lifted by a helium-filled meteorological ballon the pizza reached 33 km in height over two hours, dealing with temperatures of -60˚C (-76 Farenheit). After the balloon burst the frozen pizza dropped back to Lithuania to be found with GPS tracking. The Hawaiian flavour was the overwhelming choice of fans on the Cili Facebook page.
