This is what you do when you attend Harvard; you send burgers into space. These five students put their intellectual hard hats on and sent a peace offering up to the extraterrestrials in the form of a two-day-old hamburger.
The modern day Magellans glued the hardened, shellacked burger and sent it into the air with a camera recording the journey. The burger literally reached astronomical heights. Unfortunately, no aliens took to the peace offering, and the burger sadly fell back uneaten. I have two theories as to why the aliens didn't want the burger. The first, is it was two days freaking old! Who wants a burger after two days? That’s gotta be a burger’s half-life right? Second, they forgot the fries and drink. That’s just common intergalactic courtesy. Although, they would've had better luck finding their outer space equivalents if they had sent the burger at the same time as this Natty Light.
