I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

It is HMIe inspected and welcomes school parties and organises a structured day for the children. Teachers can download a free teaching pack to use at school. During school holidays, there are more activities and workshops to keep the wee ones amused.

It also caters for birthday parties, which includes a partyologist to help lead the group through the party. A themed workshop, on the spot demonstration and time on the exhibition floor are all included in the price along with party food and party bags for each guest with the birthday child receiving an extra gift in their party bag.

The name Satrosphere comes from the ‘Science And Technology Regional Organisation’ (SATRO) who opened the centre and decided to call it SATRO sphere.

It is often mistakenly called the Stratosphere - I called it this for several years!

It has a twin centre in Dundee called Sensation that is of equal fun and educational. As the name suggests the regular interactive displays are based around the senses and there are special events and exhibitions each month. For more information and photographs read the aboutaberdeen review of the Sensation Dundee Science Centre.
