Event description

Description

During this one hour talk Szabolcs Nagy will introduce you to the greatest technological achievement of the entire human race - the International Space Station (ISS). We did not only go to space, but we learned how to live and survive up there too.

The Space Station does a full orbit around Earth every 92 minutes, travels at a speed of 27.800 kph (17.100 mph), orbits our planet 15.5 times a day and most of the world's population can observe it. On a clear evening there is nothing more mesmerising experience than to lay back and watch the ISS flying over London, a quiet but extremely bright "star" - knowing that there are dedicated people up there doing cutting edge scientific researches for the benefit of all humankind.

A few words from the speaker Szabolcs Nagy:

‘I am an amateur International Space Station photographer and I have been taking photos of the station in the past few years. It has simply became my passion, my hobby and I would like to share this great experience with you.

So please come and enjoy our cosmic journey. I would like shine a light on this brilliant object through some of my personal anecdotes related to the International Space Station photography.’
