POP22 is brought to you by the team behind the hugely successful annual Mars Day missions. Launched in March 2021, these virtual events are presented by the UK Space Education Office (ESERO-UK), STEM Learning and in collaboration with the European Space Agency and the UK Space Agency.
Their most recent mission in March attracted over 180,000 advance registrations, live streamed a whole galaxy of guests to inspire and educate, created the foundations for a platform to showcase the range (and excitement) of careers in the UK space industry, and reminded us that the awe of space will always appeal and enthrall.
