Space Flight—The Next Generation

Join us for a special afternoon at the museum along with six celebrated astronauts and a ground-breaking NASA engineer.

Our pioneering panellists will take part in a unique discussion about working in space travel, sharing their inspiring stories and fascinating careers. We will also celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 16 mission, which was when panellist Charlie Duke became the youngest person to walk on the moon.

In this discussion, the speakers will explore how we might work towards a J.E.D.I. (Just, Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive) space, and ask the questions: How does inclusivity in space create new frontiers for inclusivity back on earth and most importantly how can we inspire future generations to take an active role in STEM and space exploration?

Book your free tickets now for a truly unique way to spend your May bank holiday.

Please note: Nicole Stott will take part in a signing of her book 'Author of Back to Earth: What Life In Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet—And Our Mission To Protect It' following the panel discussion.
