Students are set to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a space master class.

Russian Professor Alexander Martynov, a leading member of the manned mission to Mars programme, visited Highfields Upper School in Matlock to talk about a project which will see 17 students visit Korolev City, in Russia, for a week in June.

Paula Bumby, of the school said: “This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will give our students an incredible educational visit to Korolev City combining a series of master classes based on The Manned Mission to Mars.”
