Libby Jackson

Libby Jackson is the Astronaut Flight Education Programme Manager at the UK Space Agency. She is responsible for managing the Principia mission outreach projects like One Giant Read.

In this film, Libby tells us about her career in science and explains what being involved with Principia is like.

On 20th April this year ‘Astro Libby’, as pictured above, was spotted travelling not by Soyuz capsule, but by London’s DLR as she opened the London Marathon Expo.This was because Libby and her #teamastronaut crewmates were part of the ground crew running the London Marathon on Earth as Tim Peake completed it in Space.

We were certainly proud of Astro Libby and team astronaut!
