OSC: Conversation with an Astronaut!

David Saint-Jacques
Thursday, July 19, 2018 -
11:15am to 12:15pm

Excited about space exploration? Meet Quebec-born Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques. He’ll be flying to the International Space Station on his first mission “Perspective” on December 20.

Learn about his journey to becoming an astronaut. Find out what it takes to prepare for a mission in outer space. Get to know what sort of scientific experiments he’ll get himself into in zero-gravity during his six and a half months aboard the International Space Station.

This is your chance to ask David Saint-Jacques questions before he leaves for a mission that’s out of this world!
