Show Notes

Following the huge success of their first two series - Edinburgh: Space Data Capital and Scotland's Secret Space Race, Kim McAllister and Dr Murray Collins are back and this time they're going UK-wide.

They begin with a big bang - a live link to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Both Kim and Murray were key players in the project which brought schools from Scotland, Ecuador and Houston, Texas together to ask Shannon Walker and Kate Rubins questions about life aboard the ISS.

Also in this episode, they chat to astronaut Greg Johnson and Director of the Rice Space Institute, Professor David Alexander.
