After multiple failed attempts, Gadher, with the help of some friends, released the package tied to a helium balloon
A restaurant owner in the English city of Bath wanted to spice up his bleak days so, he thought of sending a samosa and a wrap into space. Niraj Gadher, the owner of Indian Fast Food restaurant "Chai Walla" documented his project as well.
Unfortunately, the attempt failed and the package made a crash landing in a location in France instead.
"I said as a joke once that I would send a samosa into space, and then I thought during this bleak times we could all use a reason to laugh," reported Indian express via Somerset Live.
What he did was, he took the snacks and put them in a box. He then attached it to a weather balloon which had a GoPro camera and a GPS tracker.
After multiple failed attempts, Gadher, with the help of some friends, released the package tied to a helium balloon.
The video captured the box travelling up over the Bath skyline and into the sky. However, the GPS malfunctioned.
But a day later it began working again, and Gadher discovered that it had landed in a forest in Caix, France. He and his friends began to message people in the area over Instagram to see if anyone would be willing to hunt down the box.
An Instagram user finally responded to his message and tried to retrieve the package on behalf of Gadher despite not living anywhere in the area.
Finally, a few days later Alex Mathon went to the location and discovered the remains of the balloon in the middle of a field, with a GoPro in it.
However, the box with the food items was missing.
