Send a space-craft to 20km above the earth using a high-altitude weather balloon.
LAUNCH POSTPONED due to weather.
Tom Mansfield, Artistic Director of Upstart Theatre transformed the Chapel (in St Mary’s Cemetery) into Andover Space Programme’s MISSION CONTROL for November 2019. He Worked 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! Due to weather, we have had to postpone the actual launch until March/April time. 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. Enter your mobile number in the form at the top of this page and we will notify you of launch date decisions closer to the time.
The project will culminate in a display at the Winchester Science Centre in 2020.
Don’t miss it!
Launch date predicted to be set for April 2020. Weather will be confirmed suitable for launch 3 days in advance. Would you like a text message to tell you when and where?
