First News - - CRAZY BUT TRUE -

A BAKEWELL pud­ding be­came lost in space last week!

The sweet treat was launched into the strato­sphere by pupils at S Anselm’s Prepara­tory School in Der­byshire as part of a sci­ence ex­per­i­ment.

It was at­tached to a bal­loon and a track­ing de­vice, but then lost con­tact some­where near Lin­coln.

The school hopes that when it turns up (which hope­fully it will!) some­one will con­tact them to let them know where it fin­ished its jour­ney.

They aren’t sure whether it will be frozen when it lands, or if it’ll still be ed­i­ble!

The ex­per­i­ment isn’t just about learn­ing though – it’s also help­ing to raise money for the Guide Dogs for the

Blind char­ity.
