Mark Thompson's A Space Traveller's Guide to the Solar System
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Is it possible for one person to journey around the solar system in the space of a human lifetime? This show is as much about the alien worlds in our planetary neighborhood as it is about the experience of travelling in space. Mark Thompson, TV astronomer and author, uses some fun demonstrations along the way to help illustrate the challenges facing human spaceflight, from early attempts at rocket propulsion through to the use of toilets and even overcoming the challenges of sex in zero gravity!
