Representatives from a space agency are to jet into Aberdeen again next year.

The event, NASA in Aberdeen, last took place in 2017.

Following its success, a week-long series of activities was organised earlier this year, which welcomed former astronaut Bob Cenker, and Mason Markee, a robotics engineer at Nasa.

As the event was again declared a triumph, representatives will travel back to the Granite City in March.

It has not been announced who will attend yet, however they will deliver presentations to primary and secondary school children from across the north-east.

Stuart Farmer, head of physics at Robert Gordon’s College, said: “The programmes provide a motivation and interest, and aspirational messages to students.”
