Your chance to ask a space expert!

As you probably know by now, we ask experts on your topics to take your questions and this Issue is no different!

We have already put your questions to our guest astronaut Chris Hadfield - watch him respond here!

We've also asked your questions to space medicine expert Bonnie Posselt - her answers will be published shortly!

Please look at our other experts below - we have some amazing people who work on space from the ground! We've added a link so you can find out more about each one.


  • Science presenter and writer Robin Ince. Robin presents the BBC Infinite Monkey Cage podcast and co-author of How to Build a Universe with Professor Brian Cox. You might want to ask him questions about what it's like to communicate to the public about space, and about his job working with and interviewing so many people from the space industry.


  • Space Engineer for ExoMars rover vehicle, Abbie Hutty. Abbie was Senior Spacecraft Engineer on the Mars rover and will be able to answer a range of questions about exploring Mars in particular. You might also want to ask about the role of women in space exploration and her pathway into the career she has now.


  • Professor Jim Al-Khalili. Jim will be particularly good at answering questions about the scientific progress we have made through space exploration, and would welcome questions about whether we should spend money and resources on it.



  • Vinita Marwaha Madill- Vinita is working on future spaceflight projects, and in the past has been involved in spacesuit design for the European Space Agency (ESA) along with working as an Operations Engineer for the International Space Station. She guided astronauts through experiments on the ISS and was involved in astronaut training. She also founded Rocket Women - a platform to inspire women to consider careers in the space industry.


We need your questions, so get writing! This is your chance to ask the questions only an expert can answer.

As before, add your questions in the comments section at the bottom of the page. If you can, state who you want your question to be asked to.

Deadline: Friday 15th November!
