High Flyin’ Meatball

High Flyin’ Meatball

It wasn’t your usual space launch, but that didn’t stop a Kansas City restaurant from making history this weekend.

Cupini’s Italian restaurant sent a Kansas City meatball into space by sending it up 89,000 feet in a weather balloon.

The restaurant’s general manager is a self-titled space technician who sent the meatball on a 200 mile trip. He says that meatball will go on display if it’s found after the return to earth.
