Cheese Balloon

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings, British cheesers have launched a balloon bearing a wedge of cheese:

The cheese travelled to an altitude of 30km before being lost. Its whereabouts are unknown as of 28. Jul 2009 at 19:35.

Aeronauts who believe they may have spotted the errant cheddar are asked to contact West Country Cheesemakers.

UPDATE: The cheese is now safely back on earth, having landed in Cressex after a journey of some 74 miles.

Didn't the Voyager II include a wheel of Double Gloucester?  I think I read that somewhere...

For my poetical tribute to the cheese balloonist (fashioned after the famous poem High Flight by John Gillespie Magee), see the cheesers' website at:
