On Tuesday the 4th of October 2016; Bloomington Academy hosted a very special guest. Members of staff, students and parents from Bloomington Academy and Royal Academy, Ajman had an interesting hour talking about space with a real-live astronaut.
Dr. Donald Thomas; retired NASA astronaut shared how he tried three time to work for NASA on their world renowned space program. He told us about the process of working for NASA as an engineer with a background in physics. The accompanying slideshow showed the experiences he had living in space for long-periods of time.
The students asked a variety of questions to find out more about how he felt in space and what it was like to soar 300km above the Earth. He inspired us all to achieve our dreams and reach for the stars just like he did. Hard work and perseverance is what we need, to do what we want in life.
This was truly out of this world!
