Fantastic bespoke visit to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

Year 9 at Space Studio Banbury (with 6 new members who will be joining in September) had a fantastic bespoke visit to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. They had talks from eminent scientists about the amazing work done at RAL with special focus on the James Webb telescope which will be launched in 2021. In the Catapult facility they had an intriguing view of how satellites can be used to track vessels at sea and spot illegal activity.

They also got the chance to stress test their own designs!

A brilliant day out for aspiring scientists and engineers.
