Did you know they there’s a job in space exploration no matter what you love to do?!
Whether it’s math, sport or cooking, there’s going to be a career in space exploration that you could be working in when you’re older.

What is Citizenship?
It’s just people working together to make positive differences to the society in which they live.
You might know some people who work in citizenship, like your MP who works to make where you live better, or your headteacher who works to make your school the best it can be!
Is Citizenship important for space exploration?
Space exploration needs lots of people who are good with Citizenship in order for it all to work properly.
If you think about it, there is lots of things that could have gone wrong in space as it doesn’t belong to any one country. What was there to stop a country claiming the moon for themselves and stopping all other countries going there?
You need people working in citizenship to figure out how best to handle issues like this in space so that it is the best it can be for everyone.

In January 27th 1967 the UK, USA and Russia all signed a treaty called the ‘Outer Space Treaty’ which states that the exploration and use of outer space shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of ALL nations.
That means that no one nation can own a planet and that space exploration will be done to benefit everyone, not just one nation.
This is a really important agreement that has lead to everyone benefiting from space travel and the science that has come from that.
It took lots of organised people who are good at citizenship to make it happen, and now over a hundred countries have signed the treaty.
