Be inspired by the wonders of the Universe and see how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.
It’s easy to forget we live on a spinning rock that is whizzing through space. Our Space Zone brings space close to home: find out how we’re already using space technology in our everyday lives and discover how the future of space exploration is being shaped right here in the north east of England.
