Year 7 scientists enjoy a day of space exploration at the National Space Centre, as part of Bishop’s Physics Week.
On Tuesday the 26th April, we went to the National Space Centre in Leicester. We learnt about the training required by astronauts and saw some of the space suits from previous missions including the suit worn by Tim Peake. We explored the planets in our universe in the interactive planetarium and felt what it was like to be in space! We then explored the displays, including the 42-metre-high Rocket Tower that has a big rocket collection. The Into Space gallery shows replicas of part of the International Space Station showing us how you go to the toilet in space! We could also pretend we were broadcasters and record ourselves discussing climate change and pollution on earth. It was a great day out and we learnt a lot about our planet, space and space travel.
