An (inter)stellar exhibition from the Royal InstitutionFifty years since the first space probe landed on the moon, Ri Lates will be exploring space, from the rocket fuel that propels us and the life of an astronaut to the scientific advances our journeys in space have given rise to. What’s life like on the ISS? How do our modern lives depend on results from the space race? And when will we be building a civilisation on Mars?
The 2015 Christmas Lectures were all about how to survive in space - now the adults can join in, try out demos from the Lectures and hear from experts in space science and cosmology. Listen to talks in the theatre and explore the rest of the Ri for hands-on activities and demonstrations, in celebration of space exploration over the ages.
