Myleene Angela Klass has been an amateur astronomer for most of her life, having been taught the basics by her father. She was one of only a handful of celebrities, engineers and scientists who were at the UK London "control centre" for the touch-down of the UK Mars probe Beagle 2 in the early morning of Christmas Day 2003. Unfortunately she and the rest of the guests waited in vain for the signal which would confirm the landing - but it was never heard. Since then she has been a keen supporter of the UK Space Programme.
In March 2006, Klass publicly criticised the proposed closure of the London Planetarium and explained on television how to view Venus in the early morning. She also appeared on Channel 4's Richard & Judy to discuss the book Moondust, which follows the lives of the first men on the moon, and in 2007 attended the televised party on BBC1, held at the home of Sir Patrick Moore in Selsey to mark the 50th anniversary of the Moore's monthly programme, The Sky at Night. Klass is now studying astronomy with the Open University.
