Natty Light Is the First Beer in Space

Of all the beers to send to space, they sent Natural Light

Following in the footsteps of the father-son team who sent an iPhone into space, two Natural Light fans (they exist?) decided to send a can into space using a weather balloon, making Natty Light the first beer in space.

According to Natty Light's YouTube channel, "The spacecraft was composed of a styrofoam cooler carrying the first beer (full beer) in space on board, a GPS tracking device, an HD video camera pointed at another (empty) can on the outside of the ship."

Watch the two-and-a-half hour journey below. Apparently they haven't popped open the beer yet, so suggestions are welcome for what to do with it now that it's back from space.
