    mission x trainees in action over the holidays at Belfairs Woodland Centre

    This week our holiday group completed Mission Control - looking at balance and co-ordination and how difficult it might be to throw and catch a ball in zero gravity. We also practiced skipping to increase our bone density and tried to make it harder by doing tricks too.

    To celebrate Easter week we undertook Egg-periments to see how Eggs might behave in space. We also explored density to see if an egg would float in saltwater. We also watched videos of Tim Peake making scrambled eggs and another astronaut testing how eggs spin in space.

The company’s 14th commercial cargo mission to resupply the space station began at 4:30 p.m. EDT with liftoff aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
    The Dragon spacecraft now is in orbit with its solar arrays deployed and providing power.
