Garfield heads into space!

We've just had an amazing assembly from the Magnetometer Instrument Manager from Imperial College London - thank you so much! Garfield Primary School's name will be going into space on the Solar Orbiter spacecraft which will be launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida in February.

The launch should be streamed live on:
