Image of Robert WalshHello, this is Robert here. I started studying the Sun when I was a young lad at St Andrews University, Scotland. I now work in Lancashire. Over the years I've spent quite a bit of time at the Goddard Space Flight Center, near Washington, USA. This is the operations centre for several NASA space projects.

In this section we learn about how satellites and rockets work.
