A whopping 716 astronauts landed at our Bay Road Park sculpture trail, tripling the previous Guinness World Record of 257!
An astronomical attempt on Saturday 23 April has awarded the Our Place in Space project with an official Guinness World Record for the most amount of humans gathered together dressed as astronauts.
