Ever wondered what it's like to be in space? Well, there's an opportunity to ask NASA astronaut Tony Antonelli, as he visits Newcastle on a tour of the UK.
'An evening with an Astronaut' is a collaboration between the International Space School Education Trust and Pint of Science. The tour has touched down in the UK with 5 stops at cities around the UK.
Tony will visit the Curtis Auditorium of Newcastle University on Wednesday 20th February, to deliver a Q+A seminar, discussing a career that's taken him out of this world.
