The exploration of space has a daily impact on our lives. It is helping us to discover a universe of unimaginable scale and beauty, and it is reaching down into our world and influencing the way we live.

“To Space and Back” takes the audience on an incredible journey from the far reaches of our known universe to the surface of our own planet. It is an extraordinary story of human ingenuity and incredible engineering, describing how the technology that transports us through space is paving the way for the devices and apps we use every day. What is happening above our heads is coming back down to Earth!

During this 1-hour long show we will also help you identify the brightest planets and constellations visible in the sky.
