Space Scientist visits the Pre-Prep

Posted: 29th March 2017

Last week the Pre-Prep were taken on a journey into our Solar System. Mrs Karnacz’s uncle, Professor John Zarnecki, who is an English space science professor and researcher, came in to present to Years 1 and 2. Since 2013, Professor Zarnecki has been a Director of the International Space Science Institute (Berne, Switzerland). He has taken part in several high-profile space probe missions and is an expert on space debris, space dust and impacts. His infectious passion was felt by the boys, particularly when he was explaining about the research he is doing on Mars.  He explained that in 30 years’ time, the boys in the audience would be the perfect age to visit Mars as they would be 35-37 years old. Watch this ‘Space’!
