Our Place in Space (Adults/Events)

Planet Earth is our home in Space; our very own spacecraft hurtling around the Sun, our nearest Star. In this talk we check out our local neighbourhood by taking a descriptive look at the Solar System, visiting each of our Planetary neighbours in turn. From the hellish world of Venus to the stormy conditions on Neptune, we discover just how the system operates, the size and distances involved plus how it was formed some 4.6 billion years ago. Come and investigate “Our Amazing Place in Space.”

This presentation can also be delivered in Virtual Reality! Just ask for details!

"We arranged for Space Detectives to visit our son’s school and show the amazing VR experience to the Year 1 and 2 students. I asked my son if the class enjoyed the sessions, he told me they LOVED IT and then start telling me lots of amazing spaces facts! Great experience and highly recommended"
