Day #3857Title: Sokol
Location: Hancock Museum, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This morning Alistair and I went to the Hancock Museum to have a look at the Sokol spacesuit worn by Britain’s first astronaut, Helen Sharman. It’s a great piece of space memorabilia which is on display in Newcastle as part of the Great Exhibition Of The North, which celebrates artistic and technological creations and people from the North of England. Helen was born in Sheffield and did her undergraduate degree there. It’s great to have such a pioneer who studied at my alma mater!
