Andy Aldrin and Jim Christensen of the Aldrin Institute will be visiting the school and speaking to an audience about their experiences of Space and their dreams and vision for the future
This is an astonishing opportunity to link up with two esteemed figures in the Space Industry who are coming across to the school from the United States to link up especially with Egglescliffe School
Embassy in London to the Reece Foundation; from the Institute of Physics – NE branch to RTC North; from all our speakers at our Space event days to the multitude of ground crew that provided prizes, print support and so much more…there are too many stars to count!!! Background information of our visitors: Dr Aldrin is President and CEO, Aldrin Family Foundation & ShareSpace Foundation; Director of the Aldrin Space Institute and ISU-Center for Space Entrepreneurship and Commerce at Florida Institute of Technology
Jim Christensen is Executive Director, ShareSpace Foundation and former Director of Education at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
He led a team to design the new Astronaut Training Experience, Mars Base 1, and the “Teaching from Space” program at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston
The Aldrin Family Foundation strives to cultivate the next generation of Space leaders, entrepreneurs and explorers who will extend human habitation beyond the Earth to the Moon and Mars
This vertical pathway unites explorers at all levels to learn from each other’s vision for Space, ultimately creating the first generation of Martians
They aim to create the game changers of tomorrow by exploring Space and to help make the world a better place
ShareSpace Foundation believes in the power of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) to inspire and nurture the next generation of explorers – from astronauts to IT professionals to scientists to doctors

Speaker: Dr Anita Dawes, The Open University Abstract: Until less than a century ago astronomers believed the Space between the stars, the interstellar medium, to be just that… empty Space
To date, over 200 molecules have been identified in Space including molecules the likes of which cannot exist naturally on earth as well as complex organic molecules, some of which very familiar to us… molecules that make up the building blocks of life
These molecules are found in regions of Space where stars and planets are born from vast clouds of dust and frost-covered dust grains
Could the building blocks of life have originated in Space? This lecture will focus on our current knowledge of how such molecules form in Space and follow their journey through the birth of stars and planets
We will also look ahead at what may lie in store for research in astrochemistry with the forthcoming launch of the much-awaited James Webb Space Telescope, which may help uncover clues concerning the greatest challenge of all – understanding the molecular origin of life
