We’re visiting the National Space Centre in Leicester!

Adam meets Mike, a space communications presenter, and we see a real Soyuz capsule used for astronaut transportation to the International Space Station, astronaut suits including Tim Peake’s launch suit and Buzz Aldrin’s space pyjamas, and a prop from the movie ‘The Martian.’

We also spy a meteorite and check out a baked bean challenge…
