Event details

To infinity and beyond...or at least as far as the International Space Station! How do we get into space? What happens to our bodies once we're there? And why is it that in space, no one can hear you scream?

Join Katherine Leech and Mark Laughton of the University of York for a fun-filled look at human space flight, with exciting experiments and live explosions!
