The Wells & Mendip Astronomers and BIS (South-west) are hosting a talk on by Dr. David Baker FBIS, former NASA engineer and Editor of ‘Spaceflight’ magazine and is open to both members and non-members.
The global space industry is now worth some $350 billion, with major new players joining from the developing world. As well as a healthy satellite industry, the last few years have seen spectacular unmanned missions to our solar system neighbours, the continued success of the ISS, and exciting new developments in the private space sector. Both public agencies and private companies have announced ambitious projects for the exploration and exploitation of space in the coming decades. In these times of bold plans and political change, Dr. David Baker FBIS, examines current trends and likely future developments in manned and unmanned spaceflight.
Entrance: WMA and BIS members £2; non-members £3; students £2
