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


President of Tynwald Noel Cringle gave a piece of the Hill to astronaut Nicole Stott before her mission began.


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.
