How do we get into space? What happens to our bodies once we're there? And why is it that in space, no one can hear you scream? Join the University of York's Katherine Leech to explore all these questions and more. With live demonstrations and hands on activities including boiling blood, oozing marshmallows and lots of explosions!
This event is part of the York Festival of Ideas. Check out yorkfestivalofideas.com/2015 for lots more exciting events.
