Space Week Living Maths Style!

Living Maths never stops for a second! Last year we were privileged to have had access to a few NASA Astronauts and Astronomers during their visit to Cape Town, South Africa for the I.A.C. We took the Head of NASA to a local school to speak to the students. We had the other Astronauts (including the head of NASA Mr Charles Bolden) giving public talks and children got to meet the Astronauts face to face. They had many questions and the Astronauts were outstanding. See some photos posted below.
