Helen Sharman, the UK’s first astronaut, gives a vibrant account of her personal experience of life in space using models and film to illustrate the key scientific concepts involved in spaceflight. Among other things she discusses the way Newton’s Third Law and convection apply to space flight, weightlessness and survival. She answers numerous questions from an audience of young school children (9-12 yrs).
