Destination Space

Join the crew as we continue our Destination Space Project to celebrate the European Space Agencies first British Astronaut on the International Space Station during 2016. We have been following Tim Peake's mission on the ISS, keeping up to date with what he has been doing and now we will be following his progress after his safe landing back on Earth.

Watch out for our special events during 2016 which will include:

2nd & 3rd July: 'Family Rocket Weekend' which also celebrates the approach of the Juno spacecraft towards Jupiter.

All this plus the destination space family science show throughout the whole of the summer holidays.

Over the weekend of the 2 and 3 July we are having a special rocket weekend. With Tim Peake returning from the ISS and the spacecraft Juno just about to reach Jupiter, space travel is very much at the forefront of our minds. Come and join us for a family rocket weekend; build and launch an air rocket and find out about the Juno mission and how the spacecraft actually got to where it is going.
