2018 highlights 

As our first SpaceUp Leicester, we already achieved a sold-out event with over 60 people. We even got an introduction from Tim Peake!!


The event had a very engaging audience who presented a range of topics from space architecture to space art, to rockets, cubesats, earth observation data and space colonisation.
