Freely translated - from Noordwijk Space Expo:

On Monday, 1 July 2013, exactly 1 year after his return from space, Andre Kuipers will be present at two special events at Noordwijk Space Expo.

14.00 h: lecture for the youth about the profession as an astronaut, in which he will tell about his experiences during his training and space mission. Children who want to be an astronaut later, or who want to know what it is like to be launched into space and to live and work on the space station, are welcome.

The youth college is for children and youth up to 16 years. Adults only have access when they are accompanying children. Pre-booking is not possible. Full is full; access fee is the normal entrance fee for Noordwijk Space Expo but all children who are dressed as an astronaut, get 1 euro off the normal entrance fee.

Children dressed as an astronaut get a free digital group photo with Andre Kuipers. They will be introduced as the "new astronaut selection" for 2030.

Children can also participate in a press conference with Andre Kuipers and interview him for radio and television. They will get a training from real journalists of TV West.

At 20.00 h, Andre Kuipers will give a lecture for everyone interested in spaceflight, He will not only tell about his stay in space but also about his return and his experiences the past year. After the lecture there will be a special meet & greet with the audience. For this lecture, no pre-booking is possible.

Entrance fee for this lecture is 25 euro, which will go to future activities of Space Expo. The lecture room and exhibition place will be open from 19.00 h.

Can't go, but if I were to, and came dressed as an astronaut, could I get my photo taken with Kuipers?

The kids' press conference is pretty neat, too.
