A pair of astronauts appear to be getting suited-up to make vital repairs on the Hubble Space Telescope here.

Actually we’re only kidding - it’s two Aldercar School teens getting into a firefighter’s breathing gear as part of an event at the school.

Our archives tell us that the officers from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service are showing a class what they do on a daily basis at an ‘on-duty’ day. The two teens look like they are having a lot of laughs donning the bulky gear here - but the event came with a far more serious message about fire and safety awareness around Bonfire Night. Perhaps you can help us find the names of the pupils behind the masks here?
