Donald Trump recently said that privatization of space exploration would play a big role in the United States’ future, and Colonel Sanders has kind of proven him right with the launch of World View Zinger 1 – one small step for man, one giant leap for a chicken sandwich.
The World View Zinger 1 is part of a promotional campaign KFC, uh, launched back in April, and last week they actually did launch a Zinger chicken sandwich into space. Why? I don’t know, but they did get World View Enterprises to help them out, and you can watch the launch in the video below:
It’s the day before Independence Day in the US, so if you’re looking for a way to kill a little bit of time you can explore the World View Zinger 1 mission as well as the entire KFC-in-space timeline at the project’s official site here (be sure to note the URL).
