Out of this world visitors

Life Science Centre was awash with astronauts last month. Tim Peake visited for a spur of the moment taste of his old ‘home’ (our replica of the International Space station in Space Zone) while former NASA astronauts Michael Foale and Barbara Morgan were also keen to visit the science centre during their recent visit to Newcastle.

While here, they met children from Reviving the Heart of the West End (RHWE), a charity which supports people in the West End of Newcastle. Michael commented, “Science centres play a key role in helping children get into science – and Life does that very well. The impact can be massive when there’s a real partnership between adults, kids and teachers.”  

Andy Aldrin, Director of the Aldrin Space Institute  and son of Buzz Aldrin, also visited in the same week to hear about the work we are doing to encourage young people to consider careers in science.
