KFC launches a chicken sandwich into space

KFC, a unit of YUM Brands (NYSE:YUM), is launching one of its chicken sandwiches into outer space Thursday as a marketing stunt to help promote its new spicy sandwich coming to the U.S. The fast food giant, who is officially calling the mission “Zinger 1,” is taking its new Zinger sandwich, which launched in April, to great heights — specifically around 80,000 feet into space.
