Kentucky Fried Chicken sent its spicy 'zinger' sandwich to the edge of the atmosphere Thursday.

The fast food chain partnered with Arizona company World View Enterprises on the unique ad campaign.

The sandwich is sitting aboard a high-altitude balloon.

It's expected to stay in the stratosphere for about four days and maintain an altitude of about 50-to-80 thousand feet.

That's one small step for chicken, one giant leap for fried kind.
