First Yorkshire pudding in space

The Heart Yorkshire Pudding reached near space meaning a first for Yorkshire, first for Yorkshire puddings and a first for Space.

Heart Yorkshire listener Leanne Kitching from Doncaster won our on-air competition to send her face into space and represent Yorkshire alongside the pudding. Leanne said: “It’s so crazy! I was listening to Heart Yorkshire at work and thought it was pretty cool, not something you hear every day and why wouldn’t I want my face in space with a Yorkshire Pudding?”

SentIntoSpace, filmed the entire flight which reached a height of over 30km. Dan Blaney from SentIntoSpace added: “When we received the call we just couldn’t resist; what better way to celebrate Yorkshire Day by sending the first Yorkshire pudding into space!”
