Nicole Stott – Astronaut, Environmentalist, Engineer, Pilot and Artist – Joins Space to Learn
Painting the Perfect Planet
A FREE live Interactive astronaut episodes are beamed out every Tuesday in our Space to Learn series.
Nicole will take you through her journey from Kennedy Space Centre on to the International Space Station and the views of Earth that inspired her to be an artist dedicated her life to sharing the beauty of our planet.
She painted the first watercolour in space, a task that was not without its zero-g challenges. She co-founded an organisation that has brought clean water to millions of people in Africa.
She has undertaken Space Shuttle Missions, including the last ever Space Shuttle flight and a long-duration International Space Station expedition. She has carried out two spacewalks and travelled over 40 million miles (65 million km) in space.
If you ever wanted to ask an astronaut a question: here is your chance. Break up your homeschooling with this exciting opportunity.
