We spend months getting a fab event organised at the Royal Institution including a NASA astronaut on 6 May.

Tell Time Out about it five times, six times in the months beforehand. Do they feature this? What do you think?

Next time we won't bother...

@Scott H  My wife and I would've LOVED to have gone to that event!
