August 24: Terry Virts Astronaut Father

Terry Virts has seen Australia many times after spending 200 days in space on a mission to the International Space Station. Terry is a high achiever in every sense of the word. He dreamed of becoming an astronaut as a child and then joined that small group of people. He has walked in space and recorded what he saw from above in thousands of photos. And we get to talk to him about the parts of his life that he rates the highest as a father, astronaut, U.S. Air Force pilot, photographer and author.


August 31: The Dust of Uruzgan

Fred Smith has been described as ‘Australia’s secret weapon’ in international diplomacy. As a career diplomat, he served for two years in southern Afghanistan. Working alongside Australian soldiers in Uruzgan Province, Fred’s second career as a musician came to the fore, his guitar serving as a bridge not only to the troops but also to the people and tribal leaders of that war-torn region. His song ‘Dust of Uruzgan’ captured the hearts of many serving in Afghanistan and ‘Sapper’s Lullaby’ has become an anthem for soldiers and their families.
