Here at One Giant Read HQ, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed following British Astronaut Tim Peake’s Principia mission as part of the Education and Outreach programme run by the UK Space Agency. We were lucky enough to be asked by the Space Agency to continue our space odyssey and bring you the latest science and space news, science fiction news and brand new STEM films for 2016-17. Now, alas, One Giant Read has been called back by mission control and must begin its journey home.
Over the coming months, while continuing to post all our usual news and space features, One Giant Read HQ’s mission control will begin the ‘decommissioning’ of mission One Giant Read. We’ll be selecting the very best of the content featured here and teleporting it to a brand new audience over at Literature Works to inspire more people to #getintoscience and discover something fascinating; whether that’s the science fiction reviews, news and interviews we’ve featured or the #STEM inspiration films we’ve shot, our mission will live on, reaching readers back on Earth.
HQ will be switching off the control panel step by step until at last, in June One Giant Read will have reached Earth again, come home and continue its mission at our home-site.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in this project and give special thanks to:
The UK Space Agency
Major Tim Peake -for providing us with inspiration and a reason to keep looking skyward Go Tim Go!

See you back on Earth – from the team at One Giant Read HQ.
