Do you feature in these 18 pictures taken at Doncaster's Earth Centre down the years?

It opened in 1999, using funding from the Millennium Commission, the European Commission and English Partnerships but it closed its doors in 2004.

So take a look back and see who you can spot in these pictures going back to 1999.
