Visit from Eoin Tuohy of the European Space Agency

Visit from Eoin Tuohy of the European Space Agency

We were extremely lucky to receive a visit from Eoin Tuohy from the European Space Agency (Europe's NASA)

Eoin and the Space Medicine Team are working in Cologne in Germany on projects aimed to investigate low-level TRL technologies that are intended for future use on the lunar surface and at present working on dust mitigation measures for future lunar missions.

Eoin shared his wealth of knowledge to all the pupils, telling us all about space, what happens on space missions, how the astronauts survive up in space, the challenging training an astronaut needs to undertake before going on a space mission. It was really interesting and Eoin answered every question that the students asked and there were zillions of them !!

Who would have thought we would be sending the 6th Class boys off "virtually" this year.
