Press Release: Events
Space Fiction Half Term At The National Space Centre
Posted at 10:11PM Wednesday 16 Jan 2013
From The First Men in the Moon to the Hitch-hikers' Guide To The Galaxy, science fiction has transported, tantalised and terrified us with visions of technologically advanced futures and far-flung worlds.
In the era of Kindle, Twitter and Audible, the way we enjoy science-fiction might have changed, but the stories remain as compelling as ever.
The National Space Centre will be celebrating the history; past, present and future of Science Fiction during February half-term with a jam-packed programme of special guests, fun activities and a special competition where you get to decide which is the 'Best Science Fiction Book of All Time!'
Each day we will have science fiction authors presenting readings form their books and discussing the appeal of science fiction.

Malika Andress from the National Space Centre said: "We are going to be joined by some of the best authors, screenwriters and illustrators working in the UK today, so this is obviously a very exciting event for the Centre to host. But more importantly, the authors represent children's, teen and adult science fiction, so something for all our visitors to enjoy."
Visitors can also win tickets in advance by championing a book on the Centre's website – www.spacecentre.co.uk/spacefiction
