Baking in Space
Saturday 7 April
How can a retro dessert explain how astronauts safely return to Earth? What connects molten sugar and micro-meteorite protection? How would you even bake bread in space? Join Andrew Smyth, aerospace engineer and Great British Bake Off finalist, and scientist, performer and explorer Dr Niamh Shaw on a gastronomic journey into orbit. This interactive event, with special guests from the European Space Agency, will explore the surprising connections between everyday bakes and the extraordinary engineering that helps keeps astronauts alive in space. Your curiosity will be whisked, stirred, and taken out of this world...
