Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a giant banana that a Canadian artist's building to blast into space.

Cesar Saez is planning to launch the 300m-long inflatable banana into orbit from Mexico next summer to see how people react to his crazy flying fruit.

The finished banana will certainly be hard to miss - it's going to be longer than three football pitches and as high as a 20-storey building in the middle.

That means it will be between 15-20% of the size of the full moon!
