Dr. Norah Patten, Irish Astronaut

Ever since she was a young girl, our next guest has had a lifelong dream to shoot for the stars thanks to a family trip to NASA at the tender age of eleven. Fast forward nearly twenty five years, her dream is still very much alive and her passion to reach space is stronger than ever.

Last October, she was one of twelve lucky scientists selected to take part in a vigorous training programme over in Florida which now brings her even closer on the path to becoming the country's first ever person in space. Joining us now to tell her story is Dr Norah Patten.
