Event Details

The IET proudly sponsor the fifth, annual 'Jennison Lecture', hosted by the School of Engineering and Digital Arts:

 

"Women in Human Space Flight"  

by Libby Jackson, Human Spaceflight expert and author

Wednesday 21st November 2018

from 6 - 7 pm in Jennison Lecture Theatre (JLT)

 

 

Students, staff, alumni and members of the public are invited to attend the annual Jennison Lecture on Wednesday 21 November.

 

Sponsored by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the lecture will be delivered by Libby Jackson, Human Spaceflight expert and author and will focus on the history of women in human space flight, such as the UK’s first astronaut and first women to visit the Mir space station, Helen Sharman.

 

The talk is designed to highlight the pioneering role many women have played in the space industry, in part to help inspire others to consider the sector as a viable career opportunity, where at present it is a heavily male-dominated environment.

 

After the talk there will be the chance to purchase signed copies of Libby’s book, A Galaxy of Her Own: Amazing Stories of Women in Space.


Please note that this lecture will appeal to a wide range of ages and backgrounds. ADMISSION BY TICKET ONLY.

We ask that guests arrive at the Jennison building on the Canterbury campus for a prompt 6 pm start.  Please see this map if you are unfamiliar with the Jennison building(H6).  Note that after 5 pm, you will be able to park in any of the staff car parks without restriction, as long as the vehicle is parked within the markings of a bay.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for marketing purposes.  if you do not wish to be featured in any photographs, please speak to a member of staff from EDA, or with the photographer directly.
