Adelaide’s always been crazy about space, but now we have the chance to get up close and personal with some of the influential people that make it possible to learn about the final frontier.
While some of us have grown up loving stars, the planets and all things beyond, the rest of Adelaide seem to have come to the party and joined our space obsession when international billionaire and CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, came to Adelaide to discuss his vision for the future, and to announce his involvement in the installation of the Jamestown battery.
Team this with Adelaide hosting the 2017 International Astronautical Congress (3000 space industry people flooded the city for their major conference!), and just recently when the girls from Walford Anglican Girls School were given the opportunity to travel overseas and study at the NASA space camp, and space has become a top of mind subject in SA.
Now NASA has an event in store for us Adeladians, which is soon going to intensify our fascination.
National Science Week is just around the corner and to help Adelaide celebrate, The Gov will be hosting a once in a lifetime opportunity to become up close and hear from NASA Scientists.
The NASA Scientists will be touring around Australia during National Science Week 2018 to talk to us about current and upcoming projects, missions and surveys.
Scientists from organisations and companies such as the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, Ames Research Centre, Jet Propulsion Lab and CalTech will be speaking at the event. These clever people have worked on various space missions, including Kepler and K2, Cassini and TESS (the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite).
Come along and hear the latest information about these important space missions, which will increase our understanding of the Universe. Booking details below.
