The Space Shed

In 2010 Jon Spooner accidentally set up his own space agency, based out of the shed at the bottom of his garden. Since then, the Unlimited Space Agency (UNSA) has recruited thousands of Agents and the British astronaut Tim Peake is our patron.  Jon tours to music and science festivals in UNSA’s spectacular mobile headquarters The Space Shed hosting conversations with inspirational scientists.

On Saturday 13th July, The Space Shed lands at Holbeck Leeds to host a day of space based entertainment for all the family.

How I Hacked My Way Into Space

The hilarious and moving story of how UNSA’s Director of Human Spaceflight Jon Spooner hacked his way into space.

“A brilliantly funny, real life tale of one man’s quest to achieve the seemingly impossible... captivated both children and adults.”

How To Save The Planet

In 2019, as the world finally wakes up to the reality of a global climate emergency, we’re trying to work out how to “be more astronaut” and what we can do to help save the planet. Join UNSA’s Director of Human Spaceflight Jon Spooner and UNSA’s first (actual) astronaut Mini Jon as they work out how to stop feeling hopeless and instead, get active!
