One of the few humans to have seen earth from space, Helen Sharman visits to recount her time on the Mir Space Station in 1991 when she was just 27 years old, spending eight days orbiting the planet.

Both Britain and Yorkshire’s first ever astronaut, the Sheffield-born and raised chemist blasted off in a Soviet Soyuz-U2 rocket 28 years ago and finally lands in Wakefield with an inspirational talk for children (Recommended for children 10 - 18 years old).
