From Conventional Rockets to the Warp Drive Mr Nicholas Ralph Trekking Kilometres on Earth might seem like a task, but in the vast empty void of space we face far greater distances. Beginning with our fight against gravity, voyaging to distant planets has become a dilemma of money, time, and critically, energy. Join us in exploring humanity's journey from conventional rockets to nuclear propulsion and take a peek at the real science behind the fabled warp drive. $18.00 Adult $12.00 Child/Concession $50.00 Family (2 adults + 2 children) Children under 3 years of age free.
