CASSiE (Cosmic Ambassador for Space Science and Engineering) is a knitted hedgehog developed by Vix Southgate as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) initiative to inspire the next generation of Space explorers and engineers.
With the help and advice of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory Mascot – Commander Camilla SDO, and Vic Minett on BBC Radio, CASSiE was born at the beginning of October 2012.
CASSiE has become a celebrity within the UK space community and has rubbed shoulders with many important Space Explorers, Scientists and Engineers. She now wants to share her experiences and new found knowledge of space and space travel to inspire the next generation of Space Explorers!
