Baked beans are heavy on Uranus

A short while ago I visited the National Space Centre. For some reason, it's located in Leicester.

Pretty fascinating. One of the highlights was this movie you could attend. The movie screen is dome-shaped, so you kinda sit in the screen, and it creates an sense of being immersed in the movie. Took a 20 minute journey to end end of the universe and back again. My friend Alex was almost nautious from the experience - how do you spell nor-shis??? Or nausious, or something.

There was this installation that illustrated how heavy beans were on different planets. Trust me, it's heavy on Uranus.

There were actual space shuttles and other space thingies, as well as a Dr Who exhibition. The coffee wasn't too bad either.
