We had an amazing time at the Winchester Science Centre last week. In addition to having time to explore all of the fantastic exhibits we enjoyed a ‘Tim Peake’ workshop where we learnt about life as an astronaut. We discovered the effect that life in a vacuum could have on your body, the problems that face astronauts where liquid is concerned and we had an opportunity to control a robot, just as the astronauts would.
After lunch we spent an hour in the planetarium enjoying the journey through space. It was incredible being able to visit all of the different planets and learn more about them. Some, we discovered, are more volatile than they look, some a made of pure gas and some even experience rain that falls as liquid diamonds.
