The winning contestants are going to be developing their ideas further with celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal.

The Judges are also looking for fun and healthy menus, which have an element of "Britishness" in them.

Much of the food that is sent to the ISS is dehydrated and contained in vacuum packs to save space and weight, which are then reconstituted with water.
