NI Science Festival


It was great to welcome Astronaut Tim Peake, for part of the NI Science Festival, via our virtual studio.

In December 2015, European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake became the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station to conduct a spacewalk (and run a marathon!) whilst orbiting Earth.

At this very special event, Tim give a personal take on what it’s like to live and work in space.

Tim also answered questions submitted by schoolkids from across Northern Ireland.

This event is hosted by Theoretical Physicist, TV presenter, Science Communicator (and former professional footballer) Mark Langtry.
