We took our kids to the Royal Institute tonight to see the first of this years Christmas Lectures.
This years theme is how humans survive in space, which is especially appropriate given that Tim Peake has just started his stint on the ISS.
The lecture series is being given by Dr Kevin Fong, whom I think I came across some ten years ago when I was involved in the Mars Society. He did a very good job, my kids loved it, and I learnt a bit too. It will be interesting to see how the lectures look on TV over the next few weeks
It will also be interesting to see how Tim’s exploits inspire interest in space in British youth, though aside from my sons I don’t know how I’ll tell.
