You might be surprised at just how many careers involve an interest in space. You could be an astronaut! You could explain orbits to primary school children! You could use satellites to study climate change on Earth. Ask yourself, what are you interested in?

How many astronauts can you name? Maybe 1 or 2? Well done if you can name more than 5! But did you know more than 500 people from more than 30 countries have been to space?!
