Turkish kebab enthusiast Yasar Aydin, a restaurant owner from Adana, southeast Turkey, attempted to send spicy kebabs into space.
Even though it was a failed effort, the kebab enthusiast received recognition online for his efforts driven by a celebratory occasion; 61 years to Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin when he became the first person to orbit the Earth in 1961 (12th April). The achievement was a major milestone in the space race.

The restaurant owner attempted to send out a spicy Turkish Kebab in space to celebrate Gagarin and the International Day of Human Space Flight created in his honor as his contribution to the exploration. Perse, as an experiment, the restaurant owner set the kebab on a tray and tied it to a parachute.
With help from local entrepreneur Idris Albayrak, a space engineering student, Aydin sent “pipe kebab into a special box, designed to endure the extreme temperatures it would face on its journey towards the heavens.”

It soon landed in the sea off Turkey’s southern coast.
