19-01-2013 : A CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY IN SPACE

For your very own encounter with space book a Canal Boat Holiday from Union Wharf in Market Harborough and visit the National Space Centre in Leicester.

Take an interactive journey through six stunning galleries, explore the universe and experience space at the only visitor attraction solely dedicated to space.

Or for an out of the world experience take a ride on Nemesis at Alton Towers which reaches Gforces greater than a space shuttle launch.

Cruise the four counties ring on your Canal Boat Holiday and you will will pass close to Alton Towers in Staffordshire.

From our marina at Anderton in Cheshire visit spaceport near Liverpool where you can take an inspirational journey through space.

Transport yourself on a startling and beautiful voyage through the universe and view the galaxy and solar system in Oasis in Space.

Book a Canal Boat Holiday for your Earth based space encounter as it may be a while before you can experience an inflatable floating home.

Nasa hopes a balloon like capsules will be a low cost way of providing somewhere to live in space.

The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module or BEAM can be squeezed into a tube and easily sent into space where it can be inflated.

It is being tested over a two year period to see how it copes with things like radiation and temperature changes and the first capsule is due to launch in 2015.

It is hoped this new technology will enable astronauts to spend longer in space enabling them to explore Mars and beyond.
