Astronaut Tim Peake is adjusting to life in space like any Briton settling into a new home – with a bacon sandwich, and a cup of tea.
But this isn’t just any bacon sandwich. It was created in conjunction with celebrity chef and culinary wizard Heston Blumenthal, who helped design a menu for Peake during the astronaut’s six-month mission on the International Space Station (ISS).
“It went from being simple purees in tubes to regular meals in ‘Thermostabilized packaging’ that can be eaten straight from the container with a spoon or fork. Most tastes can be accommodated easily now and the choices are nearly endless.”
