Space for new learning
FIFTY outstanding students from around Australia have been awarded scholarships for the International Space University’s Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program at the University of South Australia in 2019.
The students will learn about space science and exploration, space applications and services, space security, space law, human space flight and more during the five-week summer school program.
Meanwhile, 408 schoolgirls from Australia and New Zealand will fly to Houston in Texas today for an exclusive two-week NASA space school experience.
They will repair a space station and land a rover on Mars in simulated missions, construct and launch a rocket and possibly meet SA astronaut Andy Thomas and space superstar Nicole Stott.
