SpaceMascotUK – The Cosmic Hedgehog now has a name!

CASSiE      – The Cosmic Hedgehog

(Cosmic Ambassador for Space Science and Engineering)

“I am happy I am female, this means I am a more effective ambassador for inspiring Girls into Science!”  – CASSiE

“There are a couple of already famous names which helped us choose CASSiE, they are: CASSiopeia and CASSini. I have also found a couple of Space Science Research groups in the US called CASS. I hope we can help them promote their work too!

CASSiE focuses on the UK’s involvement, but she is all about Space Science and Engineering, which is an international endeavour!”   – Vix Southgate

I now have a family of hogs that will be taking up some of my tasks with other out-reach programmes – and they all need names too!
