Get inspired with Libby Jackson

By Kathleen Neighbours

Author of A Galaxy of Her Own says space isn’t just for the boys anymore!

Libby Jackson, head of the Human Exploration Programme at the UK Space Agency, has a special message for girls and boys everywhere: “You can do whatever you like!” She proved this in her talk on Saturday, when she shared the inspiring history of women in the space industry. But this talk wasn’t just for the girls.

Her message to all the children was that if they want to, they can be part of the exciting world of space travel. Libby believes that in our lifetime, we will send astronauts back to the moon and even all the way to Mars. She shared the many different ways that girls and boys alike can be involved — even without leaving the planet!
