The space program brought us advances in medicine, foods, textiles, computers, communications, the list goes on and on, but what has manned space travel given us? With NASA , the ESA and other space agencies pumping money into manned space travel can we really justify the cost?

Join us as we explore the complex issue of funding for manned space travel in a discussion panel chaired by David Parker of the UK Space Agency. Speakers include:

M. Jean-Jacques Dordain, Director General of the European Space Agency

Lord Martin Rees, Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics, University of Cambridge and Former President of the Royal Society

Dr Iya Whiteley, Deputy Director of the Centre for Space Medicine at Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL .

In addition, we can offer a limited number of attendees the opportunity to attend the speakers’ dinner in college after the event.
