Particle Podcast: Flight control for the ISS
It’s a special National Science Week Particle podcast!
Flight controller Andrea Boyd works directly with the International Space Station (ISS) on a day-to-day basis, communicating with astronauts on experiments in the European Space Agency lab.
Originally from South Australia, Andrea was in Australia for National Science Week – visiting Perth, Adelaide and Sydney to attend events and talk with budding STEM students.
Mentioned in this episode is the Zero Robotics Program, an international high school programming competition which takes place on the ISS. It’s open to schools and students around the world (with some restrictions).
