Last Tuesday, Marita and I were at a lecture and dinner with Nobel physics laureate Professor Brian Schmidt, hosted by one of Robogals' sponsors, NICTA. Professor Schmidt was part of an international team who proved, contrary to what was previously thought, that the rate of expansion of the universe is currently expanding, which he explained to us in a very engaging presentation. At the dinner afterwards we were fortunate enough to meet Nina Hooper, a recent high school graduate who has just been accepted into Harvard University to further her dreams of becoming an astronaut! Marita interviews her in this short video about her goals and ambitions for the future.
