Aberystwyth school pupils plan playground space launch

Pupils at a school in Aberystwyth were preparing to launch a space mission from their playground.

Ysgol Gymraeg's pupils have been working with a robotics expert from Aberystwyth University to build a rocket launched on a helium balloon.

They hope cameras on board will show the curvature of the Earth.

Ahead of the launch on Thursday, Craig Duggan spoke to Dr Mark Neal from the university and pupils.
