Looking Back: the Mary Rose in space
In the Museum | 19 May, 2016 | Museum Blogger
Artefacts from the Mary Rose have gone on tour all over the world. There have been exhibitions as far afield as the US and Australia, but none of the Mary Rose’s artefacts have travelled as far as parrel ball MR81A594, which in 2011 left Earth altogether!

At a gala dinner for the 2010 space-themed Portsmouth Festivities, the Mary Rose Trust presented the crew of the Atlantis Space Shuttle with a parrel ball recovered from the Mary Rose, with the hope that it would be taken into space.
