Nexus has been invited to take students to Goonhilly Earth Station to meet Dr Suzie Imber on the 31st January. Dr Imber won the BBC show “Astronauts” and is an Associate Professor in Space Physics at the University of Leicester.
During the visit to Goonhilly, the lucky Nexus students will have the opportunity to hear from Dr Imber about the life of an astronaut candidate, her current research and her plans for the future. They will also have the chance to ask their own questions in an informal Q&A.
Dr Imber has won the backing of Commander Chris Hadfield when the next round of European Space Agency astronauts are recruited.
