Hamburger SEND into space by Harvard students
A group of five bored Harvard University students put their $40,000-a-year Ivy League education to good use by launching the first ever hamburger into the upper reaches of the atmosphere.
The students, juniors Renzo Lucioni, Nuseir Yassin, Daniel Broudy, Jamie Law-Smith and Matt Moellman, spent a weekend last month brainstorming ideas for a fun science project to break the monotony of school.
In the end, the Ivy League innovators decided to send a hamburger into space as part of Operation: Skyfall. To accomplish their goal, they contacted Jon Olinto, the co-founder of the local eatery b.good burger.
