A samosa ended up crash-landing somewhere in France after a restaurant in Britain attempted to send it to space.

According to news agency United Press International, the food establishment used weather balloons.

Niraj Gadher, owner of the Chai Walla eatery, said the move aims to bring some mirth to what has been a difficult time.

“I thought during this bleak times, we could all use a reason to laugh,” Gadher said in an interview.

They attached the samosa to a weather balloon outfitted with a GoPro camera and a GPS tracker.

That way, they could follow the journey of the food item, which crash-landed in a field in Caix, Picardie, France.

On a more serious note, NASA has started testing its $23 million titanium toilet at the International Space Station.

According to various reports online, the new toilet is barely 100 pounds and just 28 inches tall.

NASA tilted the seat to better accommodate women as the old ones cater more towards the opposite sex.

Astronaut Shannon Walker noted that while the old design is easy to use, subtle changes can make all the difference.

“Trust me, I’ve got going to the bathroom in space down, because that is vital, ” said Walker.
