"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"
From the moment we are born, the process of learning begins and continues through to the moment of our death. Not a day goes by when we do not learn something new, whether we realise it or not.
I have been honoured and lucky enough to be involved from both sides – from the 5 year old child with a thirst for knowledge of the stars and the universe in which we live . . . . . . to trying to inspire other young minds to seek out knowledge and to understand what it is they have discovered.
The acquisition of knowledge can take many forms. Through traditional methods such as at the universities where I teach BSc and MSc students – our future engineers, scientists and doctors. Through to trying to inspire younger minds to want to learn more about Space through creative ‘arts and crafts’ school projects, and science based plays.
It is however, not just the young with an interested in Space. I am often asked to give public talks, radio or TV interviews, and regularly contribute to newspaper articles on the latest Space news.
