Eleven pupils from Woodfarm High School took part in a live Google Hangout with Virgin Galactic and Jaguar Land Rover on last week in Glasgow. 

The live hangout connected pupils and engineers from New Mexico, California, Barbados and Glasgow. 

Pupils from the 4x4 In Schools Engineering team (The Doc’s) along with S5 pupils studying the STEM subjects at Higher (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) quizzed staff from both companies.

Dave Mackay, the chief pilot from Virgin Galactic and a Scot himself, who studied at Glasgow University gave a great insight into space flight and the physical effects on the body, as well as its future viability.
