Blog | Fotogallery | Videochannel | Instagram | Facebook

press(Leipzig/Kurukshetra, 8.11.2023) Arthur Sommer (18) has now been active in India as an ambassador for the International Space Education Institute for 4 weeks. During this time he has covered more than 6,000 km on the subcontinent, traveled by train from north to south India and back for almost a week and attended over 30 events, trade fairs, scientific institutions and lectures.

Arthur speaks about his experiences with us and NASA in schools, universities, conferences, symposiums and also at a cadet college of the Indian Army. The main focus is on the future in space, jobs and career opportunities. He presents these together with his own experiences from the launch of NASA's moon rocket ARTEMIS 1. He explains the individual phases of a launch and flight to the moon using a self-built model (1:87) of the SLS moon rocket. The young and mature audience is always enthusiastic.

At many appearances he is supported by 16-year-old Cosma Heckel, who is then connected via video conference.


The first four weeks seemed much longer to Arthur, "because you experience so much in a short time here." He receives support from his mentor and teacher Navdeep Singh from the World Space Council India. The International Space Education Institute has built up this partnership over the years and supports the current transformation of over 30 countries into space nations with human capital through world trips for schoolchildren and students.


Arthur is also a member of the International Space Education Institute's 2024 NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge accepted team called the Rovernauts. This team has a successful history of 16 years as the first international participant with 3 world championship titles and 44 lunar car-like vehicles in various variations.


As an ambassador for the NASA Artemis Generation, Arthur supports the agency's efforts to promote more science among young people under the name "STEM Engagement".


The world tour, a social year for graduating students, is available to members of the International Space Education Institute to gain global life experiences. This not only creates unforgettable experiences for life, but above all builds bridges across supposed boundaries and gives other students a unifying career vision for the future.
