The scientists at NASA say that samosa is the first Asian food item to travel to space. While staying at the International Space Station, Indian origin astronaut Sunita Williams had enjoyed samosa and a special curry made with mustard leaves and paneer. Now, a London-based restaurant owner has tried to send the good old samosa again to the space.
Niraj Gadher, who runs an Indian restaurant called ‘Chai Walla’ in London, has become a star on the social media for his latest experiment. The youngster says he had wished to send Indian food to the space for some time. Finally, Niraj decided to make it happen. However, what happened next is what made him viral on the social media.
Niraj sent a crispy samosa and a wrap with tasty filling to the space by tying them to a balloon. He packed the food in a snack box and fitted it with a GPS to track the package and a go pro camera too.
Though Niraj launched the balloon with the help of his friends, he lost the track of the package as the GPS stopped working. However, it soon pinged and Niraj could identify the location of the balloon in the woods in Caix, France.
