A rocket being launched

To Space and Beyond

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

The space aces of Jodrell Bank present a live science show that’s out of this world. Learn how the on-site Lovell telescope has been pushing back the final frontier since the ’60s, tracking the Soviet rocket Sputnik 1 and monitoring the first manned space mission to the moon, Apollo 11. Take part in an interactive science show that’ll explore the history of space exploration, the present state of the space industry and the future of space travel, covering everything from unmanned orbital missions to reusable spacecraft and space tourism.
