World Space Week

As part of world space week some of Castleford Academy's Year 9 and Year 10 students got the opportunity to meet the American astronaut and engineer, Al Worden. Al Worden was the Command Module Pilot for the Apollo 15 lunar mission in 1971. He is one of only 24 people to have flown to the Moon.

Students enjoyed learning about space in a specially-constructed lunar dome before their question and answer session with the former NASA Apollo 15 astronaut and the BBC's 'Bang Goes the Theory' presenter Dallas Campbell.
