Astronaut’s visit was truly out of this world NASA’s James F Reilly talked to school children about life in space
AN ASTRONAUT urged people in Manchester to get out and experience the solar eclipse.
Dr James F Reilly has flown three space shuttle missions with NASA, logging over 800 space hours and five spacewalks.
Even after seeing some of the most incredible sights this galaxy has to offer, he highly recom- mended that readers grabbed a glimpse of the partial eclipse. Speaking at the Trafford Centre he said: “It’s almost eerie, the light is reduced to what you normally see and it all goes quiet if you are around insects and birds. Because the light drops in intensity you’ll notice that, and so do all living things.”
Dr Reilly was at the Thomas Cook store after staff won a contest to meet an astronaut, run by Attraction World.
