For the last 5 years the RAS200 steering group, staff and project partners have been working hard towards 2020 to celebrate our bicentenary. Can you believe it is finally here?
This year there will be many exciting events showcasing the wonderful RAS200 projects, from screenings of The Planets 360 in Hawaii, to a bespoke concert in Galway, various Girlguiding adventures and stargazing off the coast of Scotland with Care 4 Carers.
The end of 2019 was equally fun, with a space theme winter fayre at Bounce Back HQ in London, called a “Festive Constellation”. The offices were transformed into different areas to include a Knowledge Room, Fun Lab, ‘Ask an astronomer’ and Space Café. The rooms were buzzing with inquisitive minds as people came to learn, engage and interact with astronomy and the universe. There was also a taste testing experiment and a chance to taste the foods that astronauts eat in space !
