The Astro Science Challenge is a series of six different themed missions, designed by The Unlimited Space Agency and their partners (including the Met Office, the Royal Observatory, the Science Museum and the UK Space Agency). Tim Peake’s mission to the International Space Station used the unique environment of space to run experiments and try out new technologies for future human exploration missions.
