Space for the terrified!!!

This event is a great introduction to space science, no matter what age you are!


The Earth. Our Earth. Our home planet. We are just one of nine planets in our solar system and one of countless others in the galaxy. But, as far as we know, we are the only planet in our solar system where life has taken hold and evolved. Some planets are too hot – no one would want to take a holiday on the planet Venus, where a runaway greenhouse effect means that you would be burnt to a crisp if you visited the surface. Some planets are too cold like Pluto. As the furthest planet from the Sun is sometimes so cold on Pluto that its atmosphere freezes onto the surface. One planet is just right – the Earth. So, what makes our planet special and why? Come and find out how planets form, how they become ‘gassy’ or ‘rocky’, and how we are exploring the solar system to find out more about our local neighbourhood in space.
