Talk to spacemen: quiz astronauts at MOSI

The latest crew of the Discovery Space Shuttle will visit MOSI (Museum of Science & Industry) on Monday 6 July to launch their educational mission to the UK. The team of shuttle STS-119, which is led by Astronaut Mission Commander Lee Archambault, returned from the International Space Station in June, and are in Britain to inspire the nation’s budding astronauts and give first-hand information about their work in space.

They’ll be letting us know if space smells, what it’s like to eat and sleep in space, and what does a spacewalk feel like? It’s a rare opportunity to find out first-hand about their experiences in space.

MOSI is the first stop in the British tour by the astronaut crew, who have been brought to Britain by the International Space School Educational Trust. They will meet schoolchildren at MOSI and visit a school in Greater Manchester to speak about their experiences.

For the rest of us the good news is that the crew of the Discovery Space Shuttle will be starring at a MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) evening event. Here they’ll be letting us know if space smells, what it’s like to eat and sleep in space, and what does a spacewalk feel like? It’s a rare opportunity to find out first-hand about their experiences in space.

Steve Davies, director of MOSI told us: “This is a chance to meet real astronauts, to find out what it’s like to travel in space, and to learn about the International Space Station.”

Tickets are £8 adults, £6 concessions, £4 kids and a family ticket of 2 adults and 2 kids is £20.

An audience with the Discovery Crew will be held at MOSI at 7.30-8.30pm on 6 July. For more information look up www.mosi.org.uk 0161 832 2244. For tickets please click here.
