Think about it: have you ever seen an astronaut eat a donut in space? I can’t recall one ever doing so, which is dumb. Donuts are delicious. They’re also weird. So are the Swedes, two of whom are responsible for launching a donut into the atmosphere via a weather balloon. If you’re asking yourself “why”, don’t. There’s no rhyme or reason for this other than the absolute thrill of launching pastry into orbit. It’s believed to be the first donut in space, too, for what it’s worth.
