Space Oddity

Norah Patten

 On Thursday, we joined a Zoom talk given by scientist and astronaut, Norah Patten. Norah is from Mayo.

Norah Patten was 11 years of age when she visited NASA on a family trip to the United States. From that moment on she was hooked on all things space! Norah was on a mission: she wanted to learn everything she possibly could about space exploration, rockets, and how she could someday become an astronaut.

4th class had plenty of questions about space and we have been finding out more information since this talk. We might just have a Cavan astronaut in the making in our room!



Have a look at this website from the European Space Agency which has videos on how astronauts eat, sleep etc. in space.
