THE owners of Cheshire Pizza in Grappenhall, Warrington, Konrad Sedziak and Malgorzata Mrozek have teamed up with local resident Marc Dolton to help get their customers and pizzas into space!
Marc visited Cheshire Pizza one evening and started telling Konrad and Malgorzata about his plans to send items into space.
Konrad was interested straight away and looked into being the first person and business in the UK to send pizza into space.
Now a collaboration between Cheshire Pizza and Get Me To Space has developed.
Marc said: “I have always been interested in space and came up with the concept of “Get me to space” while doing some browsing on the internet. I love space, science and all things geek that are a little out of the box.
“The stranger the better in my mind. I was just having a look at the cost of sending anything to space, it turned out that sending just about anything was expensive and out of reach of a normal guy like me.
“Then I stumbled across something called a micro satellite and seen that anyone could buy one. It was still on the expensive side, so I thought about how I could at least send a piece of myself to space.
“Then the idea popped into my head, I could become a microscopic astronaut a “Micronaut” by actually sending a hair sample into space with my very own DNA in it.
A hair sample fits all of the criteria for a perfect payload on a rocket, Small, light and contains my very own personal blueprint. But this would still be expensive on my own so why not ride share and split the cost? So Getmetospace.space was born!”
Anyone who would like to know more about how you can send an item or your DNA into space, either call into Cheshire Pizza 177c Knutsford Road, Grappenhall WA4 2QL or contact Get Me To Space – https://getmetospace.space/
