Ben Freezes for Science

After graduating from Nagle College at the end of 2015, Ben enrolled in a four year Aerospace Engineering course at Monash University. Having completed the first two years, Ben is now undertaking his third year on an exchange in Sweden.

Along with approximately 50 other students from various countries around the world, Ben is attending Lulea University’s Department of Space Science at their Kiruna Campus. Kiruna is 1300 km north of Stockholm, almost 200 km inside the Arctic Circle. The temperature regularly falls below minus 20 degrees C!

Ben plans to return to Australia in 2019 to complete the fourth year of his course at Monash.
