Astronauts in Training

In Yellow Base, we have been following the progress of British astronaut Major Tim Peake’s mission on the International Space Station. Students have asked questions, such as ‘how do you clean your teeth in space?’ and have looked up the answers and then watched Tim demonstrate via video clips from the Space Station.
Yellow Base students have also been taking part in astronaut training, working on their balance, co-ordination and team work. They experienced how difficult it is to carry out fiddly tasks with thick ‘space gloves’ on – it has been great fun!
