My assignment was to check out the Visions of the Universe exhibition at the Maritime Museum, Greenwich. First, we were taken on a guided tour of the fascinating new exhibition by a real astronomer! We then played space-related games in the lecture theatre before designing our own moon on an iPad app! I learnt some really awesome facts - did you know there are more stars in the universe than the number of human heartbeats there have ever been on Earth?! I also learnt that is takes Uranus 84 years to make a complete orbit around the sun and 1,300 Earths' could fit into Jupiter!

There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth. That’s at least a billion trillion!
