While Londoners complain about #tubestrike misery, why not check out this project to use commuting as a time to talk about HIV in South Africa? http://wellc.me/1arMVb6
How can you get locals debating the issues around HIV in a region with the highest rate of HIV infection in the world? The answer is CDs, music, and catching them during the most mundane part of th...

Walking On The Moon: X-Ray of Astronaut's Spacesuit

An x-ray of the suit that Alan B. Shepard wore on the moon during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971. Fascinating to see all the layers and tech involved.

“I just had a sick feeling in my stomach. I knew that we had lost the landing. Without referencing mission rules or the books I knew that was an abort, to lose one of the tanks" - Apollo 13's Fred Haise talks about the moment they lost their chance of a Moon landing...

You’ve seen the film, you know the dramatic story, but meeting one of the members of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission is something else. Ken Willoughby and the Space Lectures team secured Apollo 13 Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise as their guest of honour in Pontefract for the final weekend of

So sorry we couldn't make this work online yesterday. We tried three different laptops in London, Tim cheeked all his settings in Russia, but a couldn't hear each other. As soon as we tried Skype we had full audio. No idea what the Google issue was, but sorry to anyone who was looking forward to this, truly sorry. You'll just have to make sure you're at the event in person next time! Tim Peake was brilliant.

L-280: Logbook

Some more manual flying of the Soyuz today and then a preparatory session for tomorrow's Soyuz sim with the Sokol suit. 

On comments from last week's posts, I have been asked how you don the Sokol. Indeed, when you see all zipped up, it's not so obvious where the entry is!

So, here it is: a step by step pictorial guide on how to put on your spacesuit! See the captions of each photograph for the corresponding explanations.

#Skylon space plane - answer to UK dreams of space, or just a dream itself? http://spacekate.com/2014/skylon-the-answer-to-uk-space-dreams/
It’s like this: I would LOVE the UK to have a human spaceflight programme. I would LOVE the UK to lead the way in space exploration. I would LOVE for people around the world to look at our country and see that we are investing in science, technology and inspiring a new generation of engineers. So

Wakey wakey sleepy spaceship - my blaggers' guide to what the #Rosetta  mission is - and why it's awesome. :) 
Do you have trouble waking up in the morning when your alarm goes off? Me too, but today I don't feel so bad about it, as it appears I'm in good company. The Rosetta spacecraft got her own alarm call today and it took a little while before she was ready to let the world know she was indeed awake.
