Space capsule on display

There's another chance to look inside a real space capsule this weekend and see how it will be converted for tourist trips into space.

The spacecraft owned by Island-based firm Excalibur Almaz is on display again in the courtyard at King William's College.

The firm hopes to offer orbital trips in space by the year 2013.

It's purchased three former Russian space capsules - or re-usable re-entry vehicles - and two space stations.

The exhibit is open to the general public from 11am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
