On 12 June, Mission X students got the chance to spin their teacher!
Students from 3 Mission X schools, Kingswinford in Dudley, Northbury in Barking and Dagenham and Mountfitchet Mathematics and Computing College in Essex, completed their Mission X programme at QinetiQ's long-arm human centrifuge facility.
Mission X students found out how astronauts train for launch and landing in the centrifuge, made famous in the James Bond Moonraker film. Students also had the opportunity to meet space tourist, Per Wimmer, to discuss his astronaut training and to take part in some Mission X exercises. Finally the Royal Aeronautical Society Library gave a presentation on spaceflight over the years.
Several brave teachers then participated in the centrifuge experience, with their health and performance monitored by their students.
