Space mission lift-off

Herald Series: Harwell Science and Innovation Campus Harwell Science and Innovation Campus

COUNTY space scientists have helped launch two satellites that are now sending back information on asteroids.

The satellites were launched last week by scientists based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Harwell to gather data including temperature and surface detail.

The Science and Technology Facilities Council project is expected to see pupils from up to 200 schools help analyse data for patterns.

You'd think there'd be a less destructive way for them to send back the data rather than on asteroids... (I'll get me coat)

If they're having trouble with asteroids I'd recommend Preparation H.
