Derry~Londonderry smashes Guinness World Record

A whopping 716 astronauts landed at our Bay Road Park sculpture trail, tripling the previous Guinness World Record of 257!

How do you break a Guinness World Record Attempt? You PLAN-et of course!

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.

716 cosmically creative costumes (meeting strict criteria!) were counted in the attempt which was hosted by local YouTube star Adam B and TV presenter Mark Langtry.

Explore a sneak peek of some of the costumes crafted by our amazing World Record breakers below, including the stunning floral helmet designed by Aoife from local business Sass and Halo.
