Food in the stratosphere - level 1
There’s a group of people. They want to send a fake pastry into the stratosphere.
They use a big balloon. The balloon is filled with gas. It takes the pastry up. It gets up to 29,000 feet (8,839 metres). There’s a camera on the balloon, too. It films an interesting video.
After two hours up there, the balloon starts to go down. The people then find it.
Difficult words: fake (not real), pastry (sweet food), stratosphere (part of the atmosphere).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
