“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!” – Captain James T.Kirk
Although the quote above is from a fiction series but the essence of it is true and humanity has always been interested in what’s out there in space. From the space race between the USA and Russia to the recent Space X launch, Earth’s finest and brightest are constantly improving to find the most optimal ways to explore space.
A group of high school science enthusiasts known as Earth To Sky Calculus has been launching balloons into the stratosphere in hope of deepening their knowledge of the upper atmosphere and recently, they launched two eggs to test the integrity and strength of eggshells when they fall from space.
In the experiment, the two eggs managed to reach an altitude of 34 kilometres and after the balloon popped, the eggs landed intact in the mountains of Sierra Nevada. They even survived a second launch. The page wrote,
“At the moment of landing, they popped out of their holder and flew another 10 feet from the payload. Despite tumbling across hard granite, they *still* did not crack. So, yes, definitely, eggshells make good spacesuits.”

So we do know that eggs can withstand the fall from space. Now, all we need to do is adapt that knowledge to producing a lighter and stronger spacesuit for our future explorers. But most importantly for now, ever thought about what you would want to send to the upper atmosphere? Share with us in the comments section below!
