With talk of missions to Mars and films such as "Hidden Figures" playing in cinemas across the world, outer space still remains a source of fascination for today's youth.

That's according to a representative of an NGO representing some 10,000 young people across the world.

Zihua Zhu, Asia-Pacific Regional Coordinator for the Space Generation Advisory Council, is in Dubai this week for a conference looking at how the global space sector can contribute to development efforts.

Dianne Penn asked Mr Zhu about his presentation to the High-Level Forum organized by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the United Arab Emirates.
