Ollie T’s determination to secure his future career in aerospace engineering is paying dividends. Ollie has known that he wants to work in this exciting and competitive industry since he began in Nexus and has spent this year writing letters to all the major players in the aerospace sector. Since he began Ollie has won a coveted place at the European Astronaut Training Centre for his Year 10 work experience next year.
The latest amazing news for Ollie is that he has been invited to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in July for a VIP viewing experience to watch the launch of the NASA Parker Solar Probe on a ULA Delta VI Heavy rocket before being given a private tour of the NASA Launch Pads and facilities. Ollie will also be able to watch the first crewed launch from US soil since 2011 as the SpaceX Falcon 9 Dragon blasts off on the way to the International Space Station.
These opportunities are a direct result of Ollie’s determination, ambition and drive. His effort and hard work have paid off and we cannot wait to hear from him all about these amazing experiences. Well done Ollie.
