Stargazing Live with Year 6

Home » Newsroom » Stargazing Live with Year 6

Year 6, together with Mrs Badger and Mrs Smith, were really excited when they were invited to Jodrell Bank for the filming of 'Stargazing Live' to celebrate British astronaut Major Tim Peake's first ever spacewalk.

They were greeted by Jamie Sloan, who told them all about Major Peake's journey to become an astronaut, and were then escorted into the studio by the BBC crew.

It was fascinating to learn about the filming of a show and to be able to watch as Dara O'Briain and Professor Brian Cox interviewed Commander Chris Hadfield, a fellow astronaut, while Major Peake embarked on his first ever spacewalk. What a fantastic experience!! They had a great day!
