Heart breakfast presenters go into space

Lego figures of Heart Four Counties breakfast show presenters Stuart Miles and Natalie B have entered space!

With help from sentintospace.com and with permission from the Civil Aviation Authority, figures of Stuart and Natalie, along with technical equipment, were launched by balloon and sent up almost 22 miles to the edge of space. A special hour-long Heart Breakfast programme was broadcast during the expedition.

The flight took three hours in total, with almost an hour spent in space, before the balloon burst. Stuart and Natalie’s figures and the technical equipment landed safely in a field in Lancashire where it was retrieved by the ground crew.

Heart Breakfast co-host Stuart Miles said: “We’ll go to any lengths to get new listeners on this show! As a child you always dream that one day you’d go space. Little did I know it would be like this! It’s one of the most amazing things we’ve done.”

Following the space trip, Stuart and Natalie are giving one school class in the area the chance to send a picture of themselves into space and become ‘classtronauts’. The competition is open to any school in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire.

Heart Breakfast co-presenter Natalie B said: “This is the stuff dreams are made of. Now we’ve done it, we’re giving the chance for a local school class to do the same – as a kid, you’ll remember the moment for the rest of your life.”
