ASTC’s interesting fact of the week.

56 years ago the first man-made object to reach the surface of another celestial body impacted the lunar surface. The Russian satellite Luna 2 was launched to the moon 2 years before Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space – Russia was miles ahead in the race for space!

On the 16th September 1992 the UK left the European ERM (Exchange Rate mechanism) when interest rates peaked at 15% – how times change!
