This National Science Week, NASA scientists will be coming to Australia to speak around the country.

They include scientists from the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, Ames Research Centre, Jet Propulsion Lab and CalTech. They work on various space missions, including Kepler and K2, Cassini and TESS (the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite). This is an exciting new two-year survey mission that will focus on the discovery of exoplanets in orbit around the brightest stars in the sky.

Come along and hear the latest information about these important space missions which will increase our understanding of the Universe.
