Mission to Mars!

On Wednesday, Key Stage 2 were visited by Astronomer and Author Colin Stuart, who gave an inspirational assembly about going on a mission to Mars. The children were fascinated as Colin spoke to them about the conditions on Mars and about how astronauts prepare for space missions on the International Space Station. He highlighted how Neil Armstrong was 38 when he walked on the moon and how we are predicting that humans may be able to get to Mars in around 30 years time. Meaning that children in primary school right now could be the first people to walk on the red planet.
