Ever wondered what science in the sky looks like or what happens when an Astronaut takes a space flight mission?
The United Nations Association of Australia and Executive Director, Matthew Kronborg, invite you to celebrate International Day of Human Space Flight on 12 April 2016 by joining a live twitter chat with NASA Astronaut Thomas Jones from 07:00am. He will be talking about his latest book, Ask an Astronaut. Germany-based Astrophotographer/Geophysicist Julian Weßel (Wessel) will guest host this event. To participate, please follow @mattkronborg on twitter and use the hashtag #AskTheAstronaut.
Both UNAA guests will be answering questions online. Non-twitter users are asked to send their questions for Thomas Jones and Julian Wessel to [email protected]
Julian Weßel will be taking over the Instagram Account of @matthewkronborg on 12 April 2016 to post exclusive photos from his Astrophotography collection taken for the UNAA.
For a chance to win one of two Ask An Astronaut books, please send pictures to our social media accounts of what science in the sky means to you.
