Ask a question to an astronaut orbiting the Earth at New Scientist Live on the 29 September.
ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli is currently on board the International Space Station orbiting at 408km above Earth. Paolo is half-way through his five-month mission and is a very experienced space explorer. Before blasting off on this mission, he has spent a total of 174 days in space, including a flight on the Space Shuttle in 2007. He has even been to the International Space Station twice before. The last time was six years ago.
New Scientist Live is setting up a live communications link with the ISS on Friday 29th September from the show at ExCeL London and are inviting you to be one of three lucky people chosen to ask a question live to Paolo in space! As well as this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you will receive two free VIP tickets to the event for Friday 29th September. To win simply enter the question you would like to ask Paolo. The winner will be the best and most interesting question, so be creative and remember this will be the question you will get to ask Paolo yourself.
The competition closes at midday on Monday 18 September 2017.
