SPACE SAPLINGS

Sky at Night Magazine - - BULLETIN -

The UK Space Agency is cur­rently seek­ing homes for saplings grown from seeds that Tim Peake took to the ISS. The seeds came from an ap­ple tree at Isaac New­ton’s for­mer house. “Now we need to find good homes for them across the UK to help as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble find out about the in­ter­twined sto­ries of New­ton, grav­ity, physics, space travel and hor­ti­cul­ture. Maybe one of the trees will one day in­spire the next New­ton,” says Jeremy Cur­tis from the UK Space Agency.
