Report on the Results:  Throughout the week students from all around Australia spoke to Australians working in the space industry via video conference. These sessions gave students an opportunity to talk to experts from a variety of backgrounds working at NASA, ESA, Astrium and more. The students were able to discuss the speakers work, how they got where they are and what they wished they'd studied when they were at school. The sessions were well attended and well received by the students.
