Apollo in perspective – how we went to the moon

Clock icon
19:00 – 21:00 2 Nov 2011
Location icon
Lindop Building College Lane Campus, Hatfield, AL10 9AB

Speakers: Dr Jonathan Allday

The moon landings happened so long ago, generations do not know how it was done and sometimes do not believe that it was done.
This talk tries to capture the spirit of the time, why the landings happened from a political point of view, how it was done from a technical point of view and what blind alleys had to be followed on the way.
The talk is heavily illustrated with images from the time, many of which will be new to the audience.
Parking available near the lecture theatre. Dr Jonathan Allday teaches physics at the Royal Hospital School where he is also Director of Studies.
He has been a space 'nut' since he was a spellbound 8 year old glued to the TV during the moon landings.
