£56 million National Space Science

Nicholas Grimshaw's scheme for the £56 million National Space Science Centre in Leicester was launched to East Midlands businesses last week, with the blessing of science minister Lord Sainsbury and pm Tony Blair. The MIllennium Commission project will include a 40m tower, an exhibitor centre, research centre, a multi-media domed space theatre and a challenger learning centre. Work is due to start on the site later this month, and the centre is due to open in February 2001.
