Another Planet

All you’ll need to do is to download an audio track, and visit a nearby green public space to experience the adventure. You’ll collect important scientific samples, dodge alien invasions and delve deep underground to discover more about the mysterious planet you land on. Audio guide Astrid the Galaxy Hopper will take you on your mission as you boldly go where no child has gone before.

You will receive a ‘Galac Pack’ in the post and a link to download an audio file. You will need a smartphone or other device to play the audio file. We recommend using two pairs of headphones and a splitter to listen together on one device.

Each pack includes:

  • Printed instructions for how to complete the mission
  • Galac-pack
  • Space notebook and note taking device
  • Gold visors
  • Handy Galactic scanners
  • Sample bottle

The audio experience lasts 40 minutes and takes you on a journey through space, landing on another planet. You will be guided to explore this new planet, collecting samples, listening to its sounds, and saving it from Aliens who are about to destroy it.

Your ‘Galac Pack’ will include printed instructions for how to experience the adventure along with items to help with your quest. You can visit a public green space of your choice to conduct your exploration, but please follow the latest government guidance so you stay safe while on your adventure.
