I hope to make it to this event With Dr Iya Whiteley next Wednesday 9 October 2019 from 13-14:00 at the Wellcome Collection. I very much enjoyed hearing Dr Whiteley speak when she and I presented together at the Royal Institution “The Human Martian” event: she does fascinating research.

Tickets are free and first come first served, at the Wellcome Collection.

From the event webpage Space Psychology:

“50-years on from the first moon landing, space tourism and missions to Mars are once again on the agenda. Join space psychologist Iya Whiteley to hear how we can prepare individuals for the immense mental challenges of these journeys and how her research could benefit us here on planet earth.”
