Junk food in space! A London-based start-up has successfully launched the first ever burger and chips into space using a helium balloon the size of a two-bedroom house.

The meal was sent 112,000 feet into the sky in a stunt that cost around 2,000 pounds.

While technically classified as "near space", the ascent is an all-time first for the humble burger and chips, the Telegraph reported.

The outlandish challenge required "lots of helium and a balloon the size of a two-bedroom house. We thought it would be a laugh," said Andy Shovel, co-founder of Chosen Bun.

This was the company's second attempt to launch their products into space. During their maiden effort in August the camera had failed.

"It stopped working about two feet off the ground," said Shovel.

The second attempt took place two weeks ago, the report said.

Chosen Bun founders Shovel and Peter Sharman, who launched the business last year, are both science enthusiasts.

"We both really love space and we're physicists as well as burger flippers," said Shovel.
