Apollo was pretty cool, but I think we can all agree that putting a Tunnock's Teacake in space is the pinnacle of human achievement.
The launch was carried out by a team at Glasgow Science Centre (GSC), aimed at sparking people's "imagination" in science and technology.

A camera attached to a hydrogen weather balloon broadcast Facebook Live images that were watched 33,000 times.

The Scottish confectionery went 21 miles up before descending. It landed in a tree in Galloway Forest Park.

For the uninitiated, Tunnock's is a biscuit manufacturer based in Glasgow.

I suppose that to launch a haggis would have offended animal lovers everywhere.
