Big Grin PhOtO: UK Scientist Launched ‘Terry’ The Teacake into Space

A UK Scientist Launched a Tunnock’s Teacake into Space

Metro UK, 16 Oct 2017.





Not in its natural habitat (Picture: Glasgow Science Centre)

A Tunnock’s teacake was launched into space by scientists who want to spark people’s imagination about science.


The Glasgow Science Centre (GSC) team launched ‘Terry’ the teacake from Houston, in Scotland UK, at lunchtime on Friday.

The iconic treat was attached to a weather balloon and was airborne for two hours and four minutes.

It took one hour and 29 minutes to reach a peak altitude of 37,007 metres. That’s nearly four times higher than the altitude passenger airplanes fly at.

The teacake eventually landed in a tree in Galloway Forest Park and was said to be ‘pretty intact’ after the adventure.





Apparently another Scottish icon is being sent to space next week – Rod Stewart? ..........

The experiment was watched live by 33,000 people on Facebook.

GSC chief executive Dr Stephen Breslin said: ‘We engage people with space science every day, and we thought what better way to spark people’s imaginations and interest in STEM than for us to launch something into space ourselves.

‘We are delighted by how many people joined us at GSC, and online, to watch Terry’s space adventures.’

It is not known whether the teacake has since been eaten.

GSC said it will release another video next week, when it will ‘give another one of Scotland’s beloved treats the science treatment.’.......

Has the time come for the battered Mars Bar to make it to space?....
