8.30pm, Tuesday, Food TV
World-renowned chef Heston Blumenthal and his team take up the challenge issued by astronaut Tim Peake to create a range of foods suitable for him to eat during his mission to the International Space Station. ‘‘This may seem like nonsense, but there’s a salient point at its heart. If humanity is ever to get to Mars and beyond, science needs to turn its attention to the aesthetic side of space sustenance,’’ wrote Stoke Sentinel’s John Woodhouse.
