Andrew Smyth: Bakineering in Space

Andrew Smyth: Bakineering in Space


Part of Otley Science Festival

How can a retro dessert explain how astronauts safely return to Earth? What does molten sugar have to do with protecting against micro-meteorites? Join Andrew Smyth, aerospace engineer by day and baker by night, on a gastronomic journey into orbit. In this interactive talk, he will explore the surprising connections between everyday bakes and the extraordinary engineering that helps keeps astronauts alive in space. As a finalist on the Great British Bake Off in 2016, Andrew became a fan favourite for his outrageously engineered delicious creations. Now he is on a mission to inspire others about engineering, but with added cake. Expect to have your taste buds tantalized and your curiosity stirred, whisked and taken out of this world...
