Do you know about the rocket that was given a knighthood?

Or that Wernher von Braun personally set a record for circling the Earth?

Or why John Glenn was known as the cleanest astronaut?

Come and hear about these and other amazing stories of space exploration collected by Jerry Stone over many years. No matter how weird or amazing they may be, they’re all true, and that includes the title of this talk.

 

Space expert Jerry Stone runs Spaceflight UK and has been telling people about space for almost 50 years! He’s the author of One Small Step, described by Sir Patrick Moore as “Marvellous”.
