It feels timely that I noticed yesterday, on International Women's Day, that this lecture is happening in the UK next month...
Full details on the Space Lectures website.
I can't make it (gutted!), but astronaut Eileen Collins, first female pilot and commander of the US Space Shuttle (1995 and 1997), will be lecturing on Saturday 25 April in West Yorkshire (dinner and photo opportunities are also available for an additional charge).
I find the details of how to attend a little bit confusing (although, for me, the degree to which this event seems to be a bit low-key adds to its charm) --do get in touch with the organisers if you are interested. I believe that the relevant contact is ken(dot)willoughby@btinternet(dot)com
