Event Details

A rare opportunity to meet European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli who recently spent six months on board the International Space Station (ISS) and while there took the iconic photographs of the last Shuttle mission to the ISS.  While on board the ISS Paolo conducted  more than 30 experiments, not only for European scientists, but also for the US, Japanese and Canadian space agencies.

His educational programme included two main activities: the international ‘Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut’ initiative built around health, well-being and nutrition, and ‘Greenhouse in Space’, a greenhouse to grow plants and observe the life cycle of a flowering plant, while schoolchildren use a similar greenhouse and the same species of plant on the ground.

Paolo will also made films with ESA’s novel 3D camera to show the Space Station in a new way.
