A group of space enthusiasts from the Sent Into Space website decided to do something different this week, sending the first ever pie into orbit.

Their idea was to send a meat pie into space in order to promote the World Pie Eating championship, which will kick off in Wigan, Manchester tomorrow.

In order to do that, they sent to pie into space on a weather balloon, on which it managed to reach 150,000 above Earth’s surface before it descended back to Earth.

Check out the video below for a quick look at it.
