The Learning Renaissance

Latest ISSET podcast considers Making a Home in Space with astronaut Bill McArthur Jones

Making a Home in Space – FREE Live Interactive Astronaut Show Tuesday 26th May

Astronaut and Test Pilot Bill McArthur

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in space? Is it like living in a house? Do you miss going outside? Do you miss your friends? Are you busy? What is the food like? How do you tidy up and clean when everything floats?

Bill has lived in space for nearly 8 months onboard the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle and the Russian Space Station Mir.  He can answer those questions and more.  He has even been outside to carry out a total of a day ‘spacewalking’ in the emptiness of space.

He will let us know what it is like to spend so much time in a small space with a small group of people, not unlike what many of us have experienced recently. He has travelled almost 16 million kilometres (10 million miles) in space.

Here is your chance to ask an astronaut a question and get your answers live from a four times astronaut.

Space to Learn is an interactive web show for home-schoolers of all ages, even adults will enjoy this inspirational, fun and an out of this world experience.


About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
