Following a short report and some images from yesterday's event at Ars Electronica Center (AEC) Linz / AUSTRIA
AEC is collaborating directly with ESA (European Space Agency) and holds the role beeing an official  european-space-education-ressource-office called ESERO. I reported about that already last year.

On Monday 4 December, teachers and students from the Czech Republic, Austria, Finland, and Italy have been connected live by video connection with ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli, currently living and working on the International Space Station (ISS). Teachers and students have been asking questions directly to Paolo Nespoli about the challenges and adventures of living in space.

In addition to the In Flight Call, there has been an exciting presentation about the universe in the 3D, 8K Deep Space of the Ars Electronica Center, as well as the opportunity to get to know ESA teaching materials. For example a workshop presenting  ESA's Astro PI Kit to develop programs and experiments to load up the program code to ISS, where the identically constructed hard&software is in space. Teachers and students can collect datas in space to analyze them later on earth.

I had the pleasure to take part in this interesting afternoon and I had the opportunity to present astronomy in general and of course our local astronomy club to the participants.

Best regards from " Keplertown Linz"
