Rocket technology of the 20th century has enabled space probes and astronauts in space vehicles to be launched beyond the Earth's atmosphere to reach further into space.
The photographs and samples retrieved from such exhibitions have resulted in a quantum leap in our knowledge and understanding of the solar system and its origins.
Now it's your turn to follow in the footsteps of the early astronomers and space scientists as you construct a simple telescope, use a mathematical formula to calculate the diameter of the moon, launch a film-canister rocket, make a model of a space station and much, much more!
The kit comes complete with a 45 page colour instruction booklet full of solid science that makes learning fun!
