The United Kingdom today entered the space race by launching a UK franchised version of the space shuttle that was piggybacking the first British built space station.
The station is equipped with 4 berths and a chemical lav.
The plastic and balsawood construction means that it will weigh less than nothing in outer space conditions.
The first UK chavnauts will spend the first day of their mission orbiting the earth very slowly, causing maximum frustration to other satellites and spacecraft during their overtaking phase.
On the second day of the mission, a spacewalk will be required to erect a special awning on the outer shell of the space station. "The Awning Of The Age Of Aquarius" will be erected at approximately 13:00 GMT and a number of experiments will be performed. These experiments are thought to involve the contents of the chemical toilet and a boules set.
