Cambridge Science Centre will be open again from Saturday 15th August for just three weeks. In its first public show since March, it will feature the Bloodhound LSR, which is aiming to break the world land speed record and reach a staggering 1,000mph.
Bloodhound - be part of the adventure
Working with Bloodhound Education, Cambridge Science Centre is very excited to welcome, for the first time in Cambridge, a special exhibition and workshop, so families can discover more about this very special five-part modular version of the actual car and explore exceptional capabilities of the Bloodhound LSR.
Bloodhound LSR is a spectacular mix of car and aircraft technology. It is powered by both a jet engine and a rocket, which together will produce more than 135,000 horsepower: that is more than 60 Formula 1 cars put together!
Last year, Bloodhound LSR clocked a speed of 628 mph (1,011 km/h), only the 8th land vehicle to cross 600 mph. Now, Bloodhound LRS is aiming to set a new Outright World Land Speed Record by pushing past the 763 mph record to an astonishing target of 1000 mph (1,610km/h).
To design, build and manufacture this amazing car, over 110-man years of effort and knowledge have already been invested. This educational modular version allows you to explore the unique design and engineering aspects of Bloodhound LSR in detail, plus fascinating insights from the Centre's communicators.
This global engineering adventure aims to inspire the next generation about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Social distancing measures will apply for this exhibition. Unfortunately, the Science Centre will not be able to offer its usual array of exciting, hands-on exhibits on this occasion.
Tickets will be limited and MUST be booked in advance via Eventbrite here>>>
