      Yes thankfully I have! When I was 9 or 10 I visited Kennedy Space Centre for the first time. I fell in love with space there! All the rockets and launch pads made me think that someday I could be working on something that’s going to space.

      I also got to go to the European Space Agency’s ESTEC centre in the Netherlands in December. That was really cool – they have a mock up of the Columbus lab on the International Space Station! ESA do amazing things and Ireland is a member of ESA so it was cool to be there and be so inspired by all the amazing missions like Rosetta.
