Dr. Norah Patten
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. For the December episode of the Limerick Lady podcast, Ann Blake and Emma Langford talk with budding astronaut, Dr. Norah Patten. The aeronautical engineer from Ballina trained at the University of Limerick and is currently on track to be the first Irish person in space. So, who better to ask how Santa gets around the whole world in one night? Together, they talk about the logistics of Santa’s sleigh, stardust and space toilets. This episode is family-friendly and features questions posed by kids and grown-ups alike.
