the study of how people have understood, conceptualized and used the phenomena in the sky and what role the sky played in their cultures, by analysing their material remains.



Astrobiology is the study of the origins, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.



Astrochemistry is the study of the composition and reactions of atoms, molecules and ions in space.



Astrogeology is concerned with the geology of the solid bodies in the solar system, such as the asteroids and the planets and their moons.



Astronomers attempt to understand the behaviour of matter, study conditions that exist only in space and cannot be found on Earth, and discover the particles involved in those processes.



Astrophotography is an activity that consists in taking photographs of celestial bodies, such as stars, planets, comets, star clusters and galaxies, or events such as eclipses, transits, among others


Earth Observation Scientist


Material Engineer

Materials engineers use their expertise to produce specifications for, design, process and apply materials effectively.


Plasma Physicists

Plasma physicists study plasmas, which are considered a distinct state of matter and occur naturally in stars


science Historian

Study the history of space travel and research!


Space Educator

What is the field about? A space educator is someone concerned with spreading knowledge about space to the general public.


Space Engineers

Space engineers understand the principles of physics including aerodynamics, motion and propulsion, as well as fluid mechanics and other theoretical and practical topics.


Space Psychologist

Psychology is concerned with understanding the mental processes that drive human nature, and how human beings relate with each other and their environment.


Spacesuit Designer

Fashion is more of a business and art while space is more technical. How can these aspects be united into one concept? A career of an astronaut’s costume designer answers this question.


Space Lawyer

Space law is the body of law governing space-related activities, encompassing both international and domestic agreements, rules, and principles.

Universally Different-Promoting inclusion in space and science learning through alternative approaches to teaching and engagement.

Jon Chase – A science communicator, author and science rapper who is currently working at Leiden University in the Netherlands as a project scientist, but perhaps he is best known for his science raps, which he has produced for organisations including NASA, BBC and Chester Zoo.

Nic Bonne – a vision-impaired astronomer and outreach and public engagement officer. Nic currently leads the Tactile Universe public engagement project, which is developing resources to help vision-impaired people learn about current topics in astronomy.

Shaaron Leverment – CEO of the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres, founding director of Explorer Dome outreach, with over 20 years of experience working in STEM engagement and education.

Anton Brooks– Science Teacher at Notton House Academy, who has worked closely with pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH), Speech, Language and Communication needs (SLCN) and Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC).

Our Space Our Future – Literature Review Explained

As part of the Our Space Our Future project, the team conducted an in-depth literature review to help inform our approach to communicating space science to the next generation. If you don’t have time to look through 1000 academic papers, we have condensed our findings into a 2-minute video!
