To the Edge of Space.

Recently companies like Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic are taking people to the edge of space, and space tourism is taking off (sorry!), but you will need to be very wealthy needing the best part of £300,000 for a ticket.

In this meeting we will be looking at how we got into space and where spaces begins and who sent the first object to get into space.
