Dr. Cameron Smith, one of the world’s top scientists in the field of space colonisation, dropped in to Year 6 today to answer the children’s questions on future humans.
In this video, Dr. Smith gives a great response to Oscar’s thoughtful question:
‘Would someone with diseases or illnesses be allowed to colonise space?’
Thank you for your time Dr. Smith – especially as it was 6:00am in Portland, Oregon USA!
Here’s what Year 6 said about their Skype session with Dr. Cameron Smith:
“It was really amazing to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to question an expert. Thank you, Dr. Smith!”
“I learned way more than if I just searched online. It was astonishing how much we learned in half an hour.”
“It was fun and interesting. We found out information we couldn’t have found any other way.”
