Day 2: Aerospace Museum
On this day we were at the „National Space Centre“ at Belgrave in Leicester. The Space Centre offered a lot of information on space, for example that Russians were the first people in space but the Americans were the first people on a celestial body.
We also learned something about the planets in our solar system and their discoverer, as well as the satellites in the orbit around the earth. In the Space Center there was also a model of a module of the ISS, where I was able to go in.
A big attraction was the tower of the Space Centre, because in the tower of the Space Centre were two big real rockets. And one was equipped with a simulator which imitated a rocket being launched into space.
Also in the tower was an simulator where we could go in and simulate the launch of a rocket with one person in the control centre and another person in the rocket.
In a little cinema we could watch the first science fiction film about the story from Jules Verne in which the humans fly to the moon.
But the best thing in the Space Centre was a planetarium with a film on the question: „Are we alone in space?“. We have learned much about and the possibilities to find extraterrestrials and to communicate with them. It was really interesting and good to understand.
The last programme item on this day was to go bowling in Sheffield. This was also really cool and very funny.
