Ever wondered what it's like to go into space? Find out with one of the most experienced astronauts, Michael Foale. There are no age restrictions for this event.

What it takes to be an astronaut

Dr Michael Foale, CBE, PhD (Former NASA astronaut)
Michael Foale is the most experienced British-born astronaut in the history of human space travel, having clocked over 373 days in space, flown on six Space Shuttle missions and a Soyuz, and commanded the International Space Station. He was the first Briton to perform a space walk, during which he saved the Hubble Space Telescope. Mike was also responsible for saving the Russian Mir Space Station when it was hit by a supply craft, lost power and tumbled out of control. He was recently inducted into the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame. Come and listen to him talk about these experiences and share his stories and videos with you at this event.
