We asked Saran…

What’s the best thing about science?

At its heart science is really human beings using our ability to look at the universe around us and figure things out – and that makes me really excited!

Given the chance, would you go to space?

Yes, I’ll get packing if you’re offering!

What's the best thing about working at the National Space Academy?

I feel so excited every day that I go into the office, I can’t believe I get to see a rocket when I go to work and I’m surrounded by amazing artifacts and awesome people.
