We Sent Garlic Bread to the Edge of Space, Then Ate It

  • We Sent Garlic Bread to the Edge of Space, Then Ate It


    The title says it all, really. Thanks to Barry from My Virgin Kitchen - go see him cook and test three different garlic breads here: - and to Steve from Random Aerospace, ! Pull down the description for more details.

    This started as a conversation in a pub a few weeks ago, and turned into one of the more ridiculous videos I've ever done. We send home-made garlic bread skyward on a balloon; exposed it to the stratosphere, 35km up; successfully returned it to earth in a protective box; and then ate it. It tasted... cold.

  • 2½ Hours of Unedited Garlic Bread Flight Footage


    There's a concept called Slow TV, championed by Norwegian broadcaster NRK, that emphasises long, unedited, contemplative journeys. Well, I've been snowed under with planning and editing some big projects, so for this week's video we're doing Slow TV with a video even less conventional than last week's.

  • Will Ice Cream Melt Going To Outer Space!?


    Beaker Creatures:

    It’s space week so I wanted to do an experiment getting as close to outer space as we can get with a giant weather balloon.

    I know that hot air rises, but that as it rises it begins to cool which is why the outside air temperature on top of mountains is cooler than at the base. I also know that the air cools roughly 5.4 degrees F per 1000 feet, and a weather balloon rises about 1000 feet per minute. So with that being the case if I sent up an ice cream cone up on a weather balloon would it melt or stay frozen before it got to the edge of space ?

    Our weather balloon was launched from Independence, CA at about 3pm PST. It reached an altitude of 97,000 feet about 2 hours later. Once the weather popped at this height it began to descend back towards Earth. However instead of being blow back into the valley where we launched it from it went 22 miles further east into DEATH VALLEY! After a 3 hour drive and a one hour hike through the desert at midnight, we finally found our payload! (everything below the balloon). By the time we got back to Los Angeles, the whole crew has been up for over 25 hours straight!

    This was by far one of the most fun videos we have ever worked on, and I will admit I had an amazing crew with me to make it happen!

  • G-Force, Jerk, and Passing Out In A Centrifuge


    Thanks to the Starrship team for arranging this! I'm also over on their channel, flying with the Blades: • At the Royal Air Force training centrifuge in Farnbrough, pilots learn how to avoid G-LOC: g-induced loss of consciousness. Let's talk about g-force, about jerk, and about how to keep circulation flowing to your brain.


    * Isn't 3.6g a really low g-tolerance? *
    Yep. Turns out I would not qualify to be a fighter pilot. The average range for g-tolerance is 4-6; no-one was expecting me to pass out. The centrifuge team do not deliberately try to G-LOC people! To be fair, though, I'd done a few earlier runs with only minor effects.

    * What g was the RAF person at the start pulling? *
    That's Marcus, from the Starrship team, and he was successfully pulling 6.5g with the help of g-trousers: they plug into a compressed air source in the plane (and in the centrifuge) and act as a lower-body tourniquet to keep the blood up top. They are very effective.

    * Why did you shake and shudder when regaining consciousness? *
    Those are called myoclonic convulsions, which is a fancy medical term for muscle jerks, and they're a common side effect of recovering from G-LOC.

    * What did it feel like? *
    I'll answer this in more detail in a video over on the Matt and Tom channel soon, but in short: I don't remember it. I was doing the breathing maneuver, then everything was wobbly, then we were stopped!

    * Is this a sponsored video? *
    No: the RAF and Starrship had no editorial control over this, and no money changed hands. Obviously, though, they gave me a spin in the centrifuge, and I'm collaborating with them over on their channel too!

    The RAF Centre of Aviation Medicine, the Starrship team, and the folks at Qinetiq.

    Astronaut Scott Kelly says it was easier to spend nearly a year in space than to get used to gravity again back on Earth. He lived on the International Space Station for 340 days. NASA continues testing him to learn how extended space travel impacts the human body. In his first network interview, Kelly spoke with Manuel Bojorquez about how he's doing a week after his return.

  • You Cannot Remove Your Fingerprints With Pineapple


    - You Cannot Remove Your Fingerprints With Pineapple. Thanks to Jess and Val on camera, and to QI for the inspiration.

    Did you really do this?
    Yes. Pretty much as you see here.

    Did it really hurt that much?
    Yes, it did.

    Possibly. Try giving yourself first-degree burns and then scouring them with acidic fruit gunk every day. (Don't actually do this.)

    Why didn't you stop earlier?
    I'm stubborn.

    How did you do that final shot?
    I added the red glow in later. It's the only part of this that isn't genuine.

    Hang on, how are you cutting that pineapple on Day 8?
    Good spot — but if you look closely, I'm holding the knife and pineapple mostly with my palms and the lower parts of my fingers. It's amazing how quickly I adapted to not being able to use my fingertips. Plus, I mentioned in the previous shot that I was only scouring last thing at night, and at that point it was helping — at the time I was cutting that pineapple, it had been about 24 hours since the last scour, so it wasn't too bad.

    Is it possible to remove your fingerprints, though, if you maybe spend every hour of the day doing gentle work with pineapple?
    Possibly, but the only evidence for bromelain actually removing fingerprints so far seems to be anecdotal. If anyone can find any journal articles, though, I'll happily update this. Please don't try it yourself.

  • NASA astronaut shows how to make a sandwich in space


    NASA astronaut, Shane Kimbrough, aboard the International Space Station (ISS), demonstrated his food preparation skills as he made a space peanut butter and jelly sandwich. A video uploaded on Friday (April 21) shows Kimbrough, the Expedition 50 commander, preparing a peanut butter and jelly filled tortilla and explaining the challenges of cooking meals in orbit. The astronaut says the trick is to secure the gravity-defying ingredients with tape to prevent them from floating away. Kimbrough said everything floats around if you don't manage it and so they have some tape to stick things on, on the table here, as well as a bunch of Velcro. Kimbrough returned to earth on April 10, landing in Kazakhstan at 7:20 a.m. (1120 GMT) after spending 173 days in space.

  • Pizza delivered to International Space Station


    1. Russian cosmonaut Yuri Usachov taking pizza out of oven and approaching table
    2. Close up of Usachov cutting pizza
    3. Usachov eating a slice of pizza as the rest of the pie floats
    4. Close up of pizza slice floating in front of the cosmonaut's face


    Delivery took much longer than 30 minutes, but an American fast food chain claims it has sent the first pizza to outer space.

    The pizza rode aboard a Russian rocket used to resupply the international space station and was eaten last month by Russian cosmonaut Yuri Usachov.

    Pepperoni lacked the necessary shelf life - it grew mold - so salami was used instead.

    Extra salt and spices were added to offset space travel's deadening effect on the taste buds.

    Some U.S. astronauts have requested pizza after returning from space, but apparently none have eaten a slice during a mission.

    The Pizza Hut chain said it paid the Russian space agency about 1 (m) million (US) Dollars for the promotional stunt, including footage of Usachov flashing a thumbs-up after eating the pizza, and for pasting the chain's logo on a rocket last year.

  • A Questionable Experiment in Motion Sickness


    Go see William Osman's video about building the car! - and thanks to Michael Reeves for being a guinea pig:

    We built a car that you drive with real-life video game lag, and used it for an ill-advised, mostly-unscientific experiment about motion sickness.

    In case it wasn't obvious: we did this in a private area away from public roads and other traffic, and I insisted on more safety checks than William and Michael would normally have. Don't try this unless you're doing the same!

  • Eating a Burger Sent to Space & The Best of April Fools 2019 – Today’s Biggest News


    THE BEST OF APRIL FOOLS' DAY: If you saw some news headlines today that struck you as somewhat unbelievable then I hope you checked the date.

    A meditation app for dogs, airplane food delivery and a wedding dress that you take, well, anywhere.

    There's only one day a year that announcements this big are all made - April Fools Day!

    Yeah, hopefully you're weren't too sucked in by the big news today, like Zoos Victoria bringing dinosaurs back to life or a new invention that turns your breath into sparkling water.

    This kind of stuff's been going on for decades and over the years there have been some pretty awesome pranks.

    Like the time the BBC told the world that spaghetti grows on trees, or when everyone thought penguins could actually fly.

    Nowadays we're all a little wiser and it's mostly about having a laugh at some of the more ridiculous news.

    Like the Bureau of Meteorology reoganising rainbows, or a zoo in Sydney's bin chicken exhibition.

    Oh and did you know that from now on, all BTN reporters will be replaced with robots?

    All hail our mechanical overlords.



    There was a worldwide blackout over the weekend but it wasn't an electrical fault, it was Earth Hour.

    Big landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum and Christ the Redeemer in Brazil all went dark and Star Wars fans in the Philippines took to the streets with lightsabers!

    Earth Hour's all about making people think about how much energy they use and how it contributes to climate change.

    All up 180 countries and millions of people took part in the event which was actually started in Australia!



    Teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg's just been given a pretty special award!

    After another day at the office leading a massive climate protest in Berlin, she took the stage at Germany's Golden Camera Awards to accept the climate protection award, which recognises the hard work she's done to get world leaders to do more about climate change.

    In her acceptance speech, Greta said we live in a strange world where children must sacrifice their education in order to protest against the destruction of their future.

    Greta's inspired thousands of kids around the world to march for climate change.



    It's been a pretty massive few days for some of Australia's sports stars!

    Ash Barty scored the biggest singles title win of her career, beating Karolina Pliskova at the Miami Open to reach number 9 in the world!

    She's just the 2nd Aussie to crack the top 10 in the past decade.



    Back home in Australia, the AFLW Grand Final smashed the attendance record, pulling in the biggest ever crowd in a national womens comp.

    Only around 20,000 fans were expected to rock up to the big game.

    Instead a whopping 53,034 people came to watch the Crows smash the Blues and win their second grand final in 3 years!

    There were some big goals, even bigger hangers and some pretty heartwarming sportsmanship.

    Crows star Erin Phillips went down a nasty knee injury and was given a standing ovation from both sets of fans & even a few hugs from the oppositon as she was stretchered off.

    It didn't stop her from winning best on ground though.

    A bittersweet way to cap off a historic day in Aussie sport.



    We're finishing up today with a story that we had to check and double check and triple-check that it wasn't an April Fools' Joke.

    YouTuber Tom Stanniland attempted to send a burger all the way to space to entertain his 2.7 million followers.

    It didn't make it to space, but it did get a long way up - about 40 kilometres above the Earth

    Tom lost contact with it but a football team at a sports field more than 150 kays away posted this pic to Twitter!

    At that moment, Tom's tracker re-engaged, and he called the team to fill them in.

    A few hours later, he was reunited with his burger and decided to have a nibble.

    It didn't taste so good.

  • How NASAs Space Food Lab Will Feed the Longest Journey in History | Freethink What it Takes


    Space food isn’t just that astronaut ice cream you had as a kid. NASA’s kitchens are hard at work preparing a new menu of space food for the farthest trip in history - the flight to Mars. Subscribe:

    This space food is more advanced even than food on the International Space Station - it needs to last for five years, more than two years longer than it can currently. That’s enough time to get to Mars and back, and serve as an emergency backup while they try to grow food on Mars. Martian agriculture will be a staple of a future Mars colony, but its success isn’t exactly guaranteed to be smooth - after all, it’s our first time doing it. Since so much can go wrong, and deliveries from Earth will take years (as anyone who’s seen The Martian knows), it’s essential the food be safe and not spoil. Can this astronaut food do all that - and be delicious? That’s the task in front of NASA’s Food Lab. We interviewed Ryan Dowdy, the ISS Food Systems Manager at NASA; Grace Douglas, Advanced Food Technology Lead Scientist; and technician Lynette Calvert on their work designing new ways to feed the next generation of space exploration. They’re trying to not just feed make astronaut food that lasts - but keep astronauts happy while they do it.

    It’s the latest episode of Freethink’s What it Takes, looking at weird jobs that make an impact and the curiously inclined people who do them. What meal would you like to eat in space? Let us know in the comments and check out our series The New Space Race, DIY Science, Coded and more!

  • Eat Like an Astronaut


    Astronauts on the International Space Station get food that’s carefully chosen for its nutritional value and specially prepared and packaged to be easily accessible to them in a weightless world on orbit. Could the same food feed the needs of people stuck on planet Earth? We conducted an experiment to find out how well two regular people could get by eating only astronaut food for a full week—a week that included a holiday weekend feast, just to up the difficulty factor. Could they resist the lure of their favorite foods? Take a look at how they fared…

  • Sending Food To Space With Helium Balloons Then Eating It ~ Incredible Science


    Can we send food to space with helium balloons and then eat it? In this incredible science experiment I sent a pizza to space and I ate it! I always wanted to taste space food. I got giant helium balloons from party city and attached the pizza with a fishing rod and planned to let the pizza fly up to space with the giant helium balloons. Mr. Beast did a video where he tried to lift himself with thousands of helium balloons but he wasn't able to lift himself up. I'm just trying to lift a small pizza box so I hope it works! I planned on getting it back by reeling it back it with a fishing rod! I got the idea for this cool science experiment from a few different youtube videos that other Youtubers sent food to space and ate it!

  • This 19-year-old can keep astronauts safe from space junk


    Space debris is a growing threat to space exploration.

    Subscribe to our channel!

    When 15-year-old Amber Yang first heard about space trash it gave her nightmares. How could such an imminent threat to space exploration be left on the back burner?

    After seeing videos with astronaut Scott Kelly, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Within a few years she consumed all the media she could on space debris, taught herself to code, and learned the ins and outs of astrophysics.

    By 18 she had developed an AI-based space debris tracking program that she claims is one of the most accurate in the world. is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines. Check out

  • We Should Let Some Wildfires Burn


    In the last few years, wildfires have been getting worse - and, oddly, it's because humans have been preventing them. From a helicopter above the forests of British Columbia, and from the Tree Ring Lab at UBC, let's talk about how we should just let some wildfires burn.

    Thanks to Bradley Friesen! He's about to properly launch his channel 'Destruction by Gravity':

    Thanks to Dr Lori Daniels at the University of British Columbia! Her recent research into wildfires includes:

  • Why The Worlds Littlest Skyscraper Was A Massive Scam


    In Wichita Falls, Texas, the Newby-McMahon Building stands 480 inches tall. Not 480 feet: 480 inches. There's a story of a smooth-talking scammer that sounds almost too good to be true. But is it?

    Thanks to Jan and all the folks at Hello Again: - and to everyone at the Wichita Falls Library!
