Live vicariously through her stories
Whether you admit it out loud or not, we've all wanted to be an astronaut for some brief moment throughout our lives, and while not many of us get to achieve that goal, there are some people who have - such as Marsha Ivins, who was an engineer and astronaut with NASA for 37 years, and has logged an impressive 1, 318 hours total in space!

Ms. Ivins is here on our shores to host a special advanced screening of the IMAX space documentary, A Beautiful Planet 3D - which is narrated by world famous Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence - and is doing an exclusive question and answer interview at IMAX Melbourne Museum this September.

On September 7th, you can see A Beautiful Planet 3D, which gives you a peek into the hopeful future of space exploration and humanity itself, then stick around afterwards to chat to Marsha, and ask her any questions you have regarding space and what it's like to be an astronaut - all for just $25!

So come along and let out all the questions you've had floating around your head, and perhaps put an end to wondering what could have been, had you been born Marsha Ivins.

You're quite right, Indya, I thing we all had a childhood fantasy to go to the moon, and this is an excellent way to either quell or enhance our fantasies!
