Join Prof Mahesh Anand, Open University Professor in Planetary Science and Exploration, as he explores how and why the Moon could play host to a sustainable human presence as we enter an era of ‘New Space’.
Fifty years since the Moon Landing, our closest celestial neighbour is becoming a favourite target for space-faring nations and commercial entities. In addition to national pride and scientific curiosity, this renaissance is driven by an increased realisation that the Moon could be a technology testbed for exploring more distant bodies.
These events are part of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society's (RSGS) Inspiring People, public talks programme.
Tickets are £10.00 (plus £1.37 booking fees), or free for RSGS members, students and under 18s.
