15 July 2015 “An evening with former astronaut Michael Foale” London
Alas I will be at the UK Space Conference in Liverpool this day presenting on a panel about space
commercialisation… but thought I’d give the event a plug as it looks like good fun!
From the pint of science website:
We’ve teamed up with the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET) and the Centre of Human & Aerospace Physiological Sciences (CHAPS) at King’s College London to bring you a Pint of Space Science!
An Evening with Mike Foale will feature the former record-breaking astronaut talk about his experiences. We’ll also be connecting live to the International Space Station and videoconferencing with Commander Scott Kelly who is currently three months into his one year living on the International Space Station. From King’s College London Dr David Green will talk about the development of a Gravity Loading Skinsuit to prevent muscle and bone loss in Space, and Dr Julie Keeble will explain how to prepare student experiments for launch to the International Space Station.
The event takes place in a theatre and so is open to people of all ages. Please note there are two types of tickets, student tickets (£9) which include those still at school as well as university students, and full-price tickets (£18) – click below for more details. The proceeds will go to the charity ISSET which aims to utilise space exploration to inspire and motivate young people to believe that they can become what they want to be.
