Scale Model “Extras”

This year we’re hoping to show more than ‘just’ the size of the solar system (as impressive as that is!). We’d like to also show people some other interesting space facts and figures, and put on some activities for them, too. On the drawing board at the moment are…

* Showing the greatest distance travelled by a Mars rover in one day.

* Showing the total distance walked by Neil Armstrong during his Apollo 11 Moonwalk

* A large model of the Milky Way galaxy, showing the solar system’s position within it

Other attractions and activities we hope to include are:

* A chance to observe the Sun through a special “solar telescope”

* A display of space artwork and photographs

* A meteorite display

… and more!

Keep checking back here for updates on the “Extras” in our 2010 model.
