Students return from 'amazing trip'

Two Manx students have returned from the United States after spending an unforgettable fortnight learning about the space industry.

Liam Carter-Hawkins from St Ninian's and Daniel Stevens from Ballakermeen attended a two week programme at the NASA United Space School in Houston, Texas.

They were chosen after writing up to 1,000 words on why they should go on the trip, and were accompanied by teacher Ben Farnworth.

The visit was organised by Manx company MannSat in conjunction with the Department of Education and Children.

Both students say it was an amazing trip, and Daniel hasn't ruled out a career in the space industry:
