Celebrate Space this Saturday

This week, people across the globe are commemorating World Space Week. On Saturday 12th October, we’ll be hosting our own space-y celebrations at the Platform in Easterhouse with a FREE Space Fair!

Be an astronomer for the day with build-your-own-Mars-rover workshops, telescopes and even a blow-up planetarium!  Astronomer Professor Martin Hendry will be on hand to answer your questions and take you on a tour of the Dark Side of the Universe.

The event will run from 12-4 pm, drop-in for some seriously cool science!
