What will we call the next generation of astronauts? Holidaymakers…
21 October 2013
My personal quest for space began at the age of three and it was all because of the magic of The Clangers. These small, wonderful, knitted creatures and their animated adventures captured my heart and my imagination, and with the logic of a child I planned my visit to the Clanger home world. People at that time were telling me excitedly about astronauts who had landed on the moon. So it should be quite easy to get one small child to Clangersville, writes Professor Maggie Aderin-Pocock (UCL Physics & Astronomy) in the Observer.
