What do dolphins and mice have in common? The rocket carrying Delphini-1 to the International Space Station of course!

The Delphini-1 launch onboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 is delayed by 1 day due to mouldy mice food for an onboard experiment (really!). The launch was rescheduled to Wednesday December 5th, at 1:16 p.m. EST (19.16 Danish time). Come and join us at the Lakeside Auditorium tomorrow at 18.00.
