In May 2014, British ESA astronaut Tim Peake challenged the school children of the United Kingom to design a meal for him to eat during his 6-month stay on board the International Space Station, in the UK Space Agency's Great British Space Dinner competition.
The KFSPACEGIRLS, Ellie Hiscock, Katie Perry, Nafissa Khan, Mia Tinnion and Suzi Peacock from Emmanuel College in Gateshead, were one of 5 winning entries that were selected by Tim Peake and Heston Blumenthal.
Their mouth-watering three-course meal in a lolly consists of tomato and basil soup, a spicy mackerel curry and an Eton mess.
Tim and Heston selected the winners from more than 500 entries, representing the work of well over 2000 students. They were looking for fun and balanced menus that excited Tim, had an element of Britishness, and the potential to be transformed into a space dinner that could be flown to the ISS.
