Hi, I'm Norah!

Since I was eleven years old, I've been obsessed with space and exploration and rockets. I want to go to space, and I am doing everything I can to make that happen. Come with me on a journey to the stars!

Dr Norah Patten is on a mission to be the first Irish person in space. Here, she tells us all about herself, all about space and the life of an astronaut:

What is the solar system? How do astronauts travel to space? What do they eat up there? How do they go to the toilet? Where will astronauts go next?

And most importantly ... how can you get there too?

A preview of the book is available to view on the O'Brien Press website here.
