The girls in 5th class were delighted to attend a presentation by Italian astronaut, Paolo Nespoli, in DCU as part of Science Week 2015. He was very informative, and we learned a lot about the life of an astronaut and the tough training involved in becoming one. Nespoli was part of the 2007 Space Shuttle Discovery mission, as well as being part of the International Space Station programme in 2010. He is currently training to revisit the ISS in 2017.

It was so fun going to DCU to learn all about space and how the astronauts train. We also learned how it is up in space and what they eat up in space.

It was nice hearing an astronaut speak to us. I learned that in space you do not have to wear shoes because you are not walking ,your hair will stay up and there is no up or down so you have to be like a monkey and hold unto stuff with your feet and hands
