Every kid - big or small - wonders what is out there when they look up at the stars at night, and now the frontier of astrobiology is even closer for our community of Carterton!
Haritina Mogoșanu , Executive Director of the New Zealand Astrobiology Network and New Zealand's first 'Martian', pitched the concept of a competition for Carterton schools to win a planetarium experience PLUS the opportunity for one child to win a full year of space science mentoring. The 50+ audience in attendance were wowed by the opportunity for our youth to get involved not only with the competition, but also with Hari and partner Sam Leske's plans for a Space science centre at Stonehenge Aotearoa.
"What an opportunity for our community, to live within one of the world's largest dark skies reserves and educate the next generation of space scientists - right here in Carterton." said one audience member in awe.
While the Star Safari won in the voting, the audience were equally impressed with and keen to learn more to support all five pitches on the night.
