A piece of Tynwald Hill is currently heading back to Earth with the Spaceshuttle Discovery.

The mission specialist is married to Manxman Chris Stott - the Isle of Man Government's Honorary Representative to the Space Community.


The piece of Tynwald Hill will be returned to the Manx Parliament once Discovery has landed in Florida.
