It was a great privilege to hear Winston Scott talk about how he went from the Navy to becoming a NASA astronaut. He spoke to students about his space missions and how simple things on Earth become so difficult in zero gravity. He explained about his experiments conducted in space on lab mice and if living in zero gravity affects their maternal instinct….it doesn’t. No matter how stressed the mother mice was she still looked after her babies. He talked about what a typical day in space was like and the kinds of things he missed on Earth (mainly gravity and cheeseburgers!) There were some excellent questions from students and their behaviour was outstanding throughout.
