The National Space Centre won national Specialist Visitor Attraction of the year
award in 2003 and provides a spectacular voyage of space and man's attempts to
understand and traverse it. The centre is also a research base for University
staff from our Space Research Centre and was mission control base for the UK's
first mission to another planet: the Beagle 2 Mars Probe.
