The British equivalent of the United State’s NASA, the British National Space Center is the governing body for all space travel that originates from the United Kingdom. In a sense, it represents a fusion of civil and government operations, with civilian scientists who focus on the space science aspect, while the money for construction of vessels and equipment comes from the government arm of the institution.
Visitors can come to the National Space Center in order to learn more about how the center operates, as well as the history of British space travel, and the plans for British space travel in the future. There’s a visitor center with plenty of information, as well as guided tours that take one around the facilities. One of the most popular times to visit the Space Center is during the launching of shuttles, but as expected, it can be a very crowded place during such times.
