Carol Vorderman has taken to social media to share a rare snap with her daughter Katie King.

The stunning throwback snap was from the the time they travelled to America together.

Carol and her scientist daughter interviewed NASAs then deputy director Vanessa Wyche, former Director NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Colleen Hartman, and astronaut trainer Grier Wilt.

They appeared on BBC's Morning Live on Thursday to shine a spotlight on the inspirational women and also how they are involved in the US space programme.

Vanessa said that 40 per cent of Nasa staff are now women and it is the aim to put the first woman on the moon by 2024.

Grier then showed her how astronauts train in a pool which recreates the feeling of floating through space.

Last week Carol expressed how proud she was of her son Cameron after he overcame 'endless bullying' and got his masters degree.

Carol took to Twitter to celebrate her son's achievement in a series of posts explaining his special education experience.

She told her social media following about her son's special educational needs and how he overcame expectations.

In the first post she shared two childhood snaps of Cameron who is now 24, before sharing his early schooling days.

She said: "My son Cameron was a happy toddler.

"Before and after he started school it became clear that he had severe special educational needs.

"No school would accept him. I was going to give up work to teach him but even I couldn't teach a child with his severe needs."

She then said in a video: "He struggled, and when I say struggled, it was off the scale. I had to find him a special school, if you like."

Carol said that despite Cameron being very bright, his learning abilities were 'different to normal' and he required extra help.

She posted another collection of photos where she called her son 'The Master' where she said: "It's hard for these kids. They get bullied and told they're 'odd' when really they have a superpower, they see the world a different way."

She posted a photo of a cake that she had made for her son where she captioned it: "Cam stuck with it, through endless bullying, changed school, developed strategies to learn.

"He got a first class honours degree in animation, and now he has just received his masters degree in animation and video effects.

"I could not be more proud of him and I love him to bits, but I'm also a very proud mum because I know just how much he struggled to get there."
