[CBC뉴스] 스코틀랜드의 한 정육점 주인이 해기스를 대기권 높이까지 보내 화제다.
사이먼 하우이 정육점이 제공한 영상에는 10만7293피트(20.3마일32.1km)에 도달하기 전까지 해기스가 날아가는 모습이 담겨있다.
A Scottish butcher took Burns Night celebrations to new heights by sending a haggis high into the atmosphere.
Footage provided by butcher Simon Howie shows a weather balloon carrying a packet of haggis into a clear sky before reaching 107,293 feet (20.3 miles, 32.1 kilometres) before falling back to earth.
Howie claims it was the first haggis to have reached the edge of space and hoped that it would inspire children to become interested in space.
After its successful mission, which took the delicacy about three times higher than normal commercial airline flights, the haggis was taken back to Howie's company headquarters in Perthshire to be preserved.
A haggis is a savoury dish containing sheep's offal cooked in the animal's stomach. It is traditionally served with lots of whisky on Burns night, which is held on January 25 in honour of Scottish poet Robert Burns.
