      No, but I have worked with aircraft that can fly at around 65000ft, which is about twice the height of a commercial plane. Working on a spaceship would be fun though!

      No, the closest I’ve got to inventing one is working with a group of children during a STEM day last year. One of the tasks was to design a spaceship based on a briefing that we gave them. Their design had to meet a certain criteria which include health & safety, specific parts and within a set budget. The best design won a prize. There were some fantastic ideas!

      No I haven’t, but I worked within the RAL Space department at STFC collecting the data that is set to us from space so that scientists can use it!

      I can’t say I have invented a spaceship, but I am working on a few things that will go to space.One of them is using state of the art quantum technology, and we have to develop custom electronics to go along with it. So sort of?
