Making young people dream about reaching out to the Moon, Venus, Mars and beyond is the objective of Hello Space! This one-day event will take place on the 26th of July 2021, when Bulgaria will establish an In-Flight Educational Downlink with the International Space Station. People aged 6 to 19 will have the opportunity to listen to astronauts from NASA and European Space Agency (ESA), who will answer questions from a previous student’s competition.
The downlink and the program surrounding it will aim to ignite the youth’s imagination and to inspire them to pursue a STEM career in the aerospace field. Participating in the event is free and open to students across Europe. People interested in taking part need to register through this link.
