KFC to send chicken sandwich to space, really!

KFC is doing something stellar. The fast-food chain plans to send its spicy zinger sandwich to space.

Yes, this is really a thing!

The chicken sandwich will reach the edge of Earth's atmosphere using a high-altitude balloon. KFC was suppose to launch the sandwich on Thursday, but it was postponed due to weather.

A rescheduled date for the spicy 'zinger' sandwich launch has not been released, but it could take off sometime next week. If all goes well, it will stay in space for at least four days.
