Chicken may not be able to fly, but that isn't stopping KFC from sending one of its most successful chicken sandwiches into the literal stratosphere as part of the 'Zinger 1 Space Mission.' Indeed, KFC has partnered with stratospheric exploration company World View to carry a Zinger chicken sandwich up into space as part of the development of the high-altitude Stratollite vessel.
KFC's apposite website, yesweareactuallysendingachickensandwichto.space, describes the timeline over which Zinger 1 Space Mission has unfolded. It began a few months ago with the official pre-launch announcement in a TV ad featuring Rob Lowe as Colonel Sanders. Over the next few weeks, Zinger 1 Space Mission released peripherals for the mission, like a patch, an anti-gravity test, and a telescopic investigation. The official flight window is now set for July 21st.
