Libby Jackson: A Galaxy of Her Own (18 April 2018)

Wednesday, 18 April 2018, 7pm – 8.30pm
British Interplanetary Society, London SW8 1SZ

‘A Galaxy of Her Own’ by Libby Jackson

The space industry is still a male-dominated working environment. Whilst the gender balance is improving, there is still much work to be done. Many people will know the names of Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake, but fewer will know of Valentina Tereshkova, Sally Ride and Helen Sharman, even though women have always played an important role in spaceflight. In her talk, Libby will shine a light on some of the unsung heroes who helped get humans into space.

Join us for an evening with Libby discussing her book, which she will be selling and signing!

Our regulars will know that some of us retire after the talk to the local Riverside pub to continue the discussions over refreshments; all attendees welcome to join us.
