national space centre

 

Today is National Space Day. Actually, it’s International Space Day.

We’re very lucky to have the National Space Centre on our doorstep in Leicester. It really is a wonderful resource and one of the most successful Millennium Fund funded projects.

The picture above was taken from the canal which runs alongside the centre. On the subject of running along the canal, this view meets you at mile 11 of Leicester half marathon or mile 24 of the full marathon.

So, at mile 11 or mile 24 you really are interested in the fact that this is one of the few vertically mounted space rockets held INSIDE a building.

The thumbnail for this picture? It’s this character that lives on the other side of the building.
