Iceland Celebrates Its 50th Birthday By Sending A Chicken Nugget To Space

The country of Iceland celebrated its 50th birthday by sending a chicken nugget to space.

Alien hunters will not think they were sending the chicken nuggets to aliens that are constantly watching us.

It is said that the chicken nugget took around 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach 110,000 feet above the earth.

The chicken nugget shot right through the troposphere then to the stratosphere to enjoy peace.

In order to reach space, the chicken nugget that was sent by the government had to go through up to -60 degrees Celsius temperatures.

This type of temperature is common in the stratosphere.

After reaching its peak height, the chicken nugget that was sent to space rocketed back down to earth.

Officials said that the nugget was coming back at a rate of 200 miles per hour.

19 kilometers above ground level, a parachute launched for the safe landing of the chicken nugget.

According to official reports, the chicken nugget was launched from a place that is close to the head office of Iceland in Deeside, North Wales.

Iceland is known to love chicken nuggets.

How much do they love chicken nuggets? Well, in just 1 week, they sold over 10 million chicken strips, nuggets, and chunks.

That much.

It is also believed that this is the first-ever chicken nugget that has been sent into space.

The nugget that was used in this celebratory event went over 110,00 feet above the earth and ground level.

Andrew Staniland, Trading Director at Iceland released a statement about the huge chicken nugget accomplishment.

They said in the statement:

2020 is a huge year for us as we celebrate our 50th birthday, and we wanted to find ways to mark the occasion, just like anyone celebrating a birthday in lockdown. What better way to show that our products are out of this world than by sending one of our customer favourites into space. We’ve all changed the way we shop in recent months and frozen food has never been so popular. We’re looking forward to continuing to celebrate our 50th year with customers and thanking them for their support.

The government of Iceland worked in partnership with Sent into Space.

The organization helped the government send the chicken nugget into the sky.

A team of experts in the field of stratospheric exploration to create the perfect ship for the chicken nugget to travel in.

Well, this has to be something different and very unique.
