The third Astro Support Team Champion is…

Last week, Jenn Wadsworth was voted the winner in the Orbit Zone, the third round of I’m an Astronaut. Jenn goes on to join Tim Peake, and the winners from the Training, Launch, and Touchdown Zones, in this summer’s final live chat.

Here’s what Jenn had to say to the students in the Orbit Zone after they voted her the winner:

A massive hello and thank you from the UK Centre for Astrobiology here at Uni Edinburgh!

I think my keyboard may have started smoking at one point from all the super fast typing during the chats!

I had so much fun talking to all you guys and answering some pretty awesome questions! I thought I knew what to expect, but was proven wrong time and time again and was very refreshed to see just how enthusiastic young people are about all things space and to also get their perspective on things – I actually feel like I learned at least as much as (hopefully) you did! 😀

A massive thank you to the whole ‘I’m an Astronaut get me out of here’ team who continue to do an epic job of moderating and organising the chats, and a humungous thank you to the other experts and all the schools who participated and made it an unforgettable experience.

It’s so encouraging to know that the next generation of scientists and explorers are already engaging in missions like Principia and will no doubt play a pivotal role in the future exploration of the solar system and beyond.

Science on, guys 😉
