      Because, personally, and with no disrespect to teachers from the UK, I don’t think that astronomy and space research is very well motivated and discussed at primary and secondary schools. I want to go around schools in the UK and deliver talks on astronomy and space engineering so that you guys could being your fascination with the universe from an early age! I would have loved to have a scientist come to my school and discuss the route into space engineering and why it’s so fun =).
