It’s 1975 and the Apollo programme – the golden age of space travel – is coming to an end. Tara Beckett is boarding Apollo 21, a dream come true. But soon after reaching orbit, the mission is thrown into jeopardy. Lost, alone, and running out of air, will she make it back to Earth or is she destined to wander between worlds forever? Performed by an ensemble cast, Illicit Ink Skyground explores the beauty, hostility and wonder of the cosmos through touching, funny and scientific storytelling.
Presented by Illicit Ink and the Royal Observatory on Wednesday 15th April at 7pm. Tickets must be booked in advance via the Edinburgh International Science Festival Website.
