We are sad to be saying goodbye this week to Moon Geese Neil, Buzz, Valentina and the   rest of the crew as the   Republic of the Moon exhibition comes to a close this Sunday. 

If you haven't had a chance to see it yet, here are a few of our favourite bits of the exhibition including the resident astronaut taking a breather in   Enter At Own Risk and the Moon Geese peeking away via the live feed from Pollinaria in Italy, to FACT's Gallery 1.
Luckily for the future of space exploration, The Moon Goose Analogue: Lunar Migration Bird Facility will continue its experiments into geese flight as part of the   AV Festival in Newcastle opening on 1 March. But before then, the galleries at FACT are open 12pm - 6pm Thursday, Friday and Sunday and 11am - 6pm on Saturday.
