I want to learn more about space(In London)
« on: 03/05/2009 03:06:03 »
Hi, I just touched down in London for a holiday, and I would really love to know where are the best places to go here to learn about space. Maybe an observatory is here somewhere or a space museum..  I tried google but I couldnt find what I wanted.

Thanks

London is now far to light-polluted to be any use for an observatory (at least for visible light).
While you are there you might want to see this too.

Science Museum, in South Kensington http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk. Also there are the Geology, Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums.

Incidentally, there is a space museum in Leicester, about 130 miles up the M1. http://www.spacecentre.co.uk/

If you check out some estate agents you'll find that space in London is amongst the most expensive in the world.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
