As part of World Space Week, we’ve teamed up with the National Space Centre to offer you the chance to win one of three family passes (2 adults plus 2 children)** to one of the United Kingdom’s leading visitor attractions devoted to space science and astronomy.
Based in the city of Leicester, the National Space Centre was opened in June 2001, serving as an educational charity for the general public and a place for science research for scientists. At the National Space Centre, you can take part in science workshops, get up close to one of the only known Soyuz spacecraft in Western Europe and wander around the six galleries dedicated to spaceflight, astronomy and cosmology. And that’s not all – the attraction also includes a Digistar 3 dome cinema and planetarium, a gift shop and a restaurant.
World Space Week is an annual event where space enthusiasts across the globe pay tribute to how the international space industry has contributed to making our lives better. The week celebrates its 17th anniversary this year and its start and end dates commemorate two important events in the history of space. Sputnik I became the first human-made satellite to be launched into outer space on 4 October 1957, while the UN Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, went into effect on 10 October 1967.
