Event Details

A full day of Physics CPD workshops provided by the Stimulating Physics Network – whether you’re a physics specialist or not. All teachers of physics, technicians and trainees are welcome to attend.

Join us for another free day of varied physics CPD, including a wide range of workshops, a supplier exhibition, and a chance to network with colleagues from across the region. We’re excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Anu Ojha OBE, Director of the UK’s National Space Academy programme and a Director of the National Space Centre.

Lunch and refreshments provided.

The event is very generously hosted by Charterhouse School, near Godalming in Surrey and offers the opportunity to take part in a number of different workshops over the day.

Human spaceflight - the challenges, risks and opportunities

More than half a century after Yuri Gagarin became the first human to break through the “final frontier”, the total number of people who have ever seen our home planet from the extraordinary platform that human spaceflight offers would fit comfortably inside a single A380 superjumbo – and 18 have died in the process. In spite of all of our experience to date, human spaceflight still pushes our science and engineering to its limits. What were the drivers behind human exploration and the Space Race? Why did we turn our back on exploration after the glory years of the Apollo programme? What exactly are we doing in Low-Earth Orbit on the ISS? And is Mars always going to be a dream of future exploration or are we truly entering the era of humanity becoming a multi-planet species?
