It was a special night for everyone involved as two great ambassadors for the sport have finally been recognised for their contribution for Nottingham winning the City Of Football Award.

Space Seeds the Results

A message from the Royal Horticultural Society Campaign for School Gardening Team
Dear Rocket Science participant, We are so excited to announce that the results of our huge science experiment can now be revealed! Overall we found that on average, the Earth seeds grew better than the space seeds, but not by much. We think this is most likely caused by the space seeds being slightly affected by radiation while on board the ISS. Despite this, they still grew and that is great news as it means there is still potential to grow food on long-term missions, or even another planet in the future!
