Out of this world: Six strange items sent into stratosphere
As a Tunnock's Teacake makes its safe return, we look at some other unlikely space invaders.
As the first Tunnock's Teacake to be launched to the edge of space made its safe return to Earth, we look at other odd items to have gone stratospheric.
The sweet treat was carried to a height of 121,000ft on a weather balloon launched from Houston, Renfrewshire.
Glasgow Science Centre (GSC) said the Teacake survived its trip to the stratosphere mostly unscathed - and sadly uneaten.
It now intends to put "Terry" on display to teach children about space.
Terry is not the only strange item to have been launched from Earth, however, as our list shows.
Royal Bank of Scotland £10 note
When RBS decided to put Scottish astronomer Mary Somerville on its new £10 note, the only appropriate way to commemorate the event was to launch her towards the Earth's atmosphere.
Pupils from St Stephens and Newhill Primary in Blairgowrie, Perthshire joined the experts from Sent Into Space for lift-off.
In 2011, the Ardbeg Distillery on Islay sent a bottle of malt whisky to the International Space Station.
The goal was to discover if being in space would have an impact on the taste of the drink.
Compared to a control bottle on its return, the distillery concluded the space bottle was noticeably different in terms of taste.
The distillery described its findings as "groundbreaking".
The Disney Pixar character was taken to infinity and beyond by NASA.
Buzz Lightyear spent a year in space between 2012 to 2013 with crew members Greg Chamitoff and Mike Fincke.
On his return, he was given his own parade down Main Street, USA, in Disney World.
Gene Roddenberry's ashes
After his death in 1991, the Star Trek creator was among a group of the first people on Earth to have his ashes in space.
His remains were flown to a space station, along with those of James Doohan, who played Scotty in the original series.
They were returned in 1997.
In 2001, Pizza Hut paid nearly £750,000 to become the first company to deliver pizza to the International Space Station.
The only known fast food delivery to have been delivered out of this world, the restaurant spent months in collaboration with Russian scientists to deliver the pizza to a Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Usachov.
The lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars made the trip to space.
In 2007, the prop was aboard the space shuttle Discovery STS-120.
The weapon was flown in honour of the 30th anniversary of the George Lucas franchise.
