This will be an excellent opportunity to understand the aims, aspirations and achievements of human spaceflight.

  • Tim Peake is the first UK publicly selected and trained astronaut and has a key role as an ambassador for science and manned space-flight in the UK.
  • Jean-François has flown on 3 space missions, including visiting MIR and the ISS and in the space shuttle.

The public will have a chance to pose questions as well as hearing all about the fun and trials of human spaceflight. Equally important is our training for space flight and the scientific experiments we undertake in space – the visiting astronauts will talk about their stays at StarCity and NASA, scuba diving training, as well as living in Arctic environments.
