Event Name:  The Week Junior Science+Nature SPACE SPECIAL (guest-edited by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock)
Event Description:  The Week Junior Science+Nature – the award-winning monthly magazine for children – is proud to announce a very special issue for World Space Week 2022, with Maggie Aderin-Pocock as guest editor. Space scientist, writer and BBC's Sky At Night co-presenter, Dr Maggie has curated an exciting magazine, that you can view for FREE! The special issue is fizzing with stellar content, from the discovery of strange new worlds beyond our solar system to the inspirational story of Wanda Diaz-Merced, the blind astronomer. Along the way, readers can check in on NASA's new planned Moon missions and learn how to see October's Orinoid meteor shower. Science+Nature encourages young readers to engage and participate with topical issues in STEM. In the wake of DART's successful impact on Dimorphos, we ask whether we should be spending more to defend our planet from asteroids. And there's much, much more packed into this 60-page edition! Dr Maggie says, “I am so happy that this year's World Space Week will focus on space and sustainability. Monitoring our planet from space makes Earth a better place for everyone.” In addition, British astronaut Tim Peake uses the October Space Week edition to give an interview to the children's magazine calling for spaceflight to be more eco-friendly. Editor, Dan Green comments, “We are incredibly excited to have Dr Maggie on board as our first-ever guest editor. There's no better person to captain this voyage. We aim to fire our young readers’ imaginations and inspire them to tackle the world's biggest questions. After all, it might be this magazine that leads one of them to develop the first truly sustainable spacecraft.” Find out more at
