19 March 2019 “The Human Martian” The Royal Institution


I am absolutely thrilled to be speaking within this amazing line-up in the Faraday Theatre at the RI in a couple of weeks: multi-Guinness World Record Holder adventurer Adrian Hayes; space medicine specialist, artist and author Dr Iya Whiteley; and our session chair: broadcaster, documentarian and author Dallas Campbell. (Some of you may recall that I contributed to his brilliant book, Ad Astra: An Illustrated Guide to Leaving the Planet.)

Details below taken from “The Royal Institution: The Human Martian” event website where you can go for full speaker details, and get further information.

About the event

“We can restore the sense of wonder and adventure in space exploration that we knew in the summer of 1969. We won the moon race; now it’s time for us to live and work on Mars.”

Buzz Aldrin, 2009

Join us as we explore humanity’s first attempts to establish a permanent settlement on Mars. Adrian Hayes, Iya Whiteley and Jill Stuart bring together expertise from the worlds of exploration, science and law to guide us through how humans will live in a new era in which space exploration is no longer about the journey.

From Space Medicine to Space Law, how will this new society function?

Time: 19-20:30
