An astronaut who has been on the International Space Station is to give a talk in Aberdeen.
NASA in Aberdeen will take place again for the third year.
Run by Aberdeen Science Centre, it is aimed at both schoolchildren as well as the general public.
This year, astronaut Bill McArthur will share his experiences from multiple shuttle flights, and also about his time as commander of the expedition #12 crew on the International Space Station.
The challenges of going to Mars will also be discussed, as well as how the International Space Station helps to gain the knowledge required to make missions into space successful.
