Wannabe space explorers get ‘Ticket to Mars’ from Queen Mary College
Young winners of a science contest are creating a magazine for teenage wannabe space explorers.
The magazine, Ticket to Mars, is being officially launched like a rocket at the Houses of Parliament later this year.
They scooped the Cosmic Futures competition run by the Mile End’s Queen Mary, University of London with the UK Space Agency, winning the chance to learn how to produce a magazine of their own.
Science enthusiasts under 18 were invited to create a poster or write why Britain is at the forefront of Space science.
The seven winners, Natalie Hogg, Alice Ardis, Andrew Wood, Kathryn Smith, Keiran Hashimi, Becky Hayward and Elizabeth Phillip, explored the Science Museum and met Bridget, a robot designed to explore Mars.

They then went on to Queen Mary to work on the magazine with graphic designers.
They are spending the next two weeks writing articles, collecting images and editing Ticket to Mars, which goes out to schools across the country from October.
