Join us at the Astrocampus as we discuss the likelihood of life existing around the planet Tatooine: The childhood home of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. This fictional planet is noted for having not one, but two Sun's in its sky. Could such a planet exist in real life? PLUS try hands-on activities, take the opportunity to look round the observatory and, weather permitting, discover the wonders of space through our top of the range telescopes.
