Event Name:  Space Day 2017
Event Description:  11:00am until 4:30pm What’s so great about Space Day is the variety of exhibitors (and that its free of course). Visiting the event is fascinating – from a stand run by a local Astronomy club you wander a few yards to the next stand and you can be chatting to a Science Fiction author or maybe an author who has been writing books documenting Space Exploration. Then onto a company like Reaction Engines pioneering break through propulsion technology. You turn round to look at the Leicester University stand and you could find yourself chatting to one of the UK’s top X Ray Astronomy researchers! Then of course there are: Planetarium shows Talks Book readings Build a Model Spaceship Competition Finally you might even see a Static Rocket Motor firing! Do spread the word about Space Day and hope to see you there!
