Proposed Launch Day
Artistic Director Tom Mansfield is the artist in residence at CAS throughout November. He has transformed the Chapel (in St Mary’s Cemetery) into Andover Space Programme’s MISSION CONTROL. Working with Andover Young Carers and the Picket Twenty Fillies (W.I. Group) to plan an Andover space craft launch, taking messages from Andover up to the edge of space! The craft will be loaded with cameras to get footage of the flight. We plan to track the craft with GPS and will attempt to recover all footage.
The project will culminate in a display at the Winchester Science Centre in 2020.
