The 10 Most Bizarre Items Ever Sent Into Space

10. The Space Chair

As a publicity stunt shilling a new version of a flat screen TV, JP Aerospace was paid by Toshiba to launch a comfortable looking chair into outer space. The endeavor managed to get the chair up around 98,000 feet into space, using only a balloon. After rising to stunning heights, the space chair disengaged and fell back to earth, quickly disintegrating into that broken chair that you’ve been meaning to fix, but never get around to. The camera used by the team at JP Aerospace survived, managing to land only 12 miles away from the initial launch site. Rumor has it the space chair is still more comfortable than first class on United Airways.
