Of all the novel things that humanity has sent into space, a samosa has made its debut. But unfortunately, it didn’t last too long, and made its way back to earth. Bizarre story, but one that has actually happened.
An Indian restaurant based in the UK successfully managed to launch the said samosa into space, which later crash-landed in France. According to news reports, Chai Walla, a popular and one of the best-ranked restaurants in Bath, had completed the space mission in three tries.
According to news website UPI, Niraj Gadher, the eatery’s owner, said he wanted to spread some cheer and came up with the idea of sending a samosa into space. “I said as a joke once that I would send a samosa into space, and then I thought during these bleak times we could all use a reason to laugh,” he was quoted as saying.
Gadher had used helium balloons for the samosa’s space journey. And it took three tries to get it right. While the first time the balloons slipped from his hands, the second time they “did not have enough helium”. In the third attempt, they got it right.
