An amazing opportunity at Scienceworks has arisen for students all over Victoria to hear stories from the perspective of those who have ventured, worked and lived in space! Astronaut Stories Australia is a keynote series of events run by the AIAA to bring the stories, passion and inspiration of the world’s astronauts and cosmonauts to life. (Instructions on how to enter questions for astronauts to ask – to include school identification.)
