Rocket Science

On 1st February, NeneGate School were informed that we had been successful in our application to take part in Rocket Science.

2kg of seeds provided by RHS were sent to the International Space Station on Suyuz 44s with astronaut Tim Peake.The seeds arrived back on earth at 4:26am on 2nd March. We are waiting for them to arrive at school.

100 seeds will be part of an experiment by NeneGate School to compare the effect being in space has had on them compared to seeds which haven't been in space.
