This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is about protecting astronauts from the effects of harmful UV light.
Students can experiment with different materials to discover which blocks UV light the best and can inform the Royal Society of Chemistry about their results to receive a mission completion certificate, patches, and to unlock a secret video featuring Tim Peake.
The global experiment booklet contains an overview of the global experiment, a guide to the experiments and the experiments themselves.
